Mange, D., Stauffe, A., Petraglio, E. and Tempesti, G. (2003) Self-replicating loop with universal construction. Physics D: Nonlinear Phenomena, 191 (1-2). pp. 178-192. ISSN 0167-2789
After a survey of the theory and some realizations of self-replicating machines, this paper presents a novel self-replicating loop endowed with universal construction properties. Based on the hardware implementation of the so-called Tom Thumb algorithm, the design of this loop leads to a new kind of cellular automaton made of a processing and a control units. The self-replication of the “LSL” acronym serves as an artificial cell division example of the loop and results in a new and straightforward methodology for the self-replication of computing machines of any dimensions.
