• A similarity measure for cyclic unary regular languages 

      Dassow, Jürgen; Martín Reyes, Gema María; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose (IOS Press, 2009)
      A cyclic unary regular language is a regular language over a unary alphabet that is represented by a cyclic automaton. We propose a similarity measure for cyclic unary regular languages by modifying the Jaccard similarity ...
    • Emergent diversity in an open-ended evolving virtual community 

      Fernández Rodríguez, Jose David; Lobo Fernández, Daniel; Martín Reyes, Gema María; Doursat, René; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose (MIT Press, 2012)
      Understanding the dynamics of biodiversity has become an important line of research in theoretical ecology and, in particular, conservation biology. However, studying the evolution of ecological communities under ...
    • Evolving Complexity and Similarity in an Artificial Life Framework based on Formal Language Theory 

      Martín Reyes, Gema María (Universidad de Málaga, Servicio de Publicaciones y Divulgacion Cientifica, 2013)
      In this thesis, a formal framework where the evolution of biological complexity can be studied in an objective way is defined. That objectivity is due to state complexity for regular languages is used and it is a well-known ...
    • Evolving under small disruption 

      Dassow, Jürgen; Martín Reyes, Gema María; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose (2013-12-02)
      We extend the edit operators of substitution, deletion, and insertion of a symbol over a word by introducing two new operators (partial copy and partial elimination) inspired by biological gene duplication. We de ne a ...
    • Low Disruption Transformations on Cyclic Automata 

      Martín Reyes, Gema María; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose; Dassow, Jürgen (IOS Press, 2010)
      We extend the edit operators of substitution, deletion, and insertion of a symbol over a word by introducing two new operators (partial copy and partial elimination) inspired by biological gene duplication. We define a ...
    • Some operations preserving primitivity of words 

      Dassow, Jürgen; Martín Reyes, Gema María; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose (Elsevier, 2009)
      We investigate some operations where essentially, from a given word w, the word ww′ is constructed where w′ is a modified copy of w or a modified mirror image of w. We study whether ww′ is a primitive word provided that w ...
