Abstract: Spatial and spatio-temporal patterns occur widely in physics, chemistry and biology. In many cases, they seem to be generated spontaneously. These phenomena have motivated a great deal of mathematical modelling and the analysis of the resultant systems has led to a greater understanding of the underlaying mechanisms. Partial differential equations of diffusion type have long served as models for regulatory feedbacks and pattern formation. We are witnessing a technical development in our fields where the sensing, computing, activating circuits and systems are becoming inherently connected; physically and theoretically, as well. Moreover, as a result of this, our notion about sensory computing, even about computing, is in a continuous transformation. Hence, we have to make a closer look about the fundamentals of computing.
