    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Evolution of form and function in a model of differentiated multicellular organisms with gene regulatory networks 

      Lobo Fernández, Daniel; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose (Elsevier, 2010)
      The emergence of novelties, as a generator of diversity, in the form and function of the organisms have long puzzled biologists. The study of the developmental process and the anatomical properties of an organism provides ...
    • Evolutionary development of tensegrity structures 

      Lobo Fernández, Daniel; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose (Elsevier, 2010)
      Contributions from the emerging fields of molecular genetics and evo-devo (evolutionary developmental biology) are greatly benefiting the field of evolutionary computation, initiating a promise of renewal in the traditional ...
    • Automating the search of molecular motor templates by evolutionary methods 

      Fernández-Rodríguez, Jose David; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose (Elsevier, 2011)
      Biological molecular motors are nanoscale devices capable of transforming chemical energy into mechanical work, which are being researched in many scientific disciplines. From a computational point of view, the characteristics ...
    • Graph grammars with string-regulated rewriting 

      Lobo Fernández, Daniel; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose; Dassow, Jürgen (Elsevier, 2011)
      Multicellular organisms undergo a complex developmental process, orchestrated by the genetic information in their cells, in order to form a newborn individual from a fertilized egg. This complex process, not completely ...
    • 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 ...
    • AI Methods in Algorithmic Composition: A Comprehensive Survey 

      Fernández-Rodríguez, Jose David; Vico-Vela, Francisco Jose (AI Access Foundation, 2013)
      Algorithmic composition is the partial or total automation of the process of music composition by using computers. Since the 1950s, different computational techniques related to Artificial Intelligence have been used for ...
