Self-Replicating Machines

Will Stevens


This site is about work related to self-replicating machines that I carried out for my PhD thesis with the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Open University in the UK between 2004 and 2009. I am interested in physically realistic simulations of self-replicating machines made from simple component parts. On this website you will find an introduction to self-replicating machines aimed at non-specialists, published papers about my research, animations from simulations of self-replicating machines, simulation software that you can download and links to other work related to self-replication.
