Modeling, Methodologies and Tools for Molecular and Nano-scale Communications

Chapter proposal/abstract submission due: September 1, 2013
Chapter submission due: December 1, 2013

Editors: Junichi Suzuki (UMass Boston), Tadashi Nakano (Osaka U.) and Michael J. Moore (Penn State)


Future systems of nano-scale devices (nanomachines) have the significant potential to expand the capabilities for interacting with biological, chemical and physical systems. Nanomachines may have electrical or biological components for simple tasks such as sensing, computing, data storage and actuation and form a system through molecular and nano-scale communications in order to perform collaborative and/or parallel tasks that no individual nanomachines could. Potential applications for such systems are anticipated in medical, environmental or self-manufacturing systems.

This book aims at systematic and in-depth introduction to current modeling, methodologies and tools applied to advancing the design of communication systems between nanomachines and applications for systems of nanomachines. The topic area is interdisciplinary between the areas of computer science, biological science, and nanotechnology; therefore, the intended audience is for those areas who are interested in the modeling, analysis, and design of nano-scale systems.
