Probabilistic Real Swarm Logical Gate
Computation can be implemented by natural entities. We established that a swarm of soldier crabs probabilistically performed basic logical operations through geometrically constrained channels. Two inputs three outputs logical gate G simultaneously performed NOT x AND y, x AND y and x AND NOT y. The logical gate G also could be treated as a logical gate G′ that performed NOT x. Next we proposed a logical gate G″ that performed x OR y. Moreover we illustrated how three fundamental gates could be assembled into circuits. Then we discuss about an integration of gates and a circuit as a relationship between part and wholeness.
