This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Natural Computing, TPNC , held in Kingston, ON, Canada, in December The 15 full papers presented in this book, together with two invited talk, were carefully reviewed and selected from 38 submissions.

The Best Computer Books list contains some of the most influential computing books ever written, most of which are suitable for beginners and experts alike, with a very few only for advanced students. The list covers the core subjects of computer science while also including many general books on computing. Natural Computing is a scientific journal covering natural computing research. It has been published quarterly by Springer Verlag (Springer Netherlands) in print (ISSN ) and online (ISSN ) since Natural Computing is the fascinating field that investigates human-designed computing inspired by nature and computing occurring in nature. This major reference is comprised of two volumes that document all the developments in this emerging field. In their book Natural Computing, Dennis Shasha and Cathy Lazere describe the calculations necessary for the analysis of protein folding, which is important in biological research and particularly in drug design. Time must be divided into very short intervals of around one femtosecond, which is a million billionth of a second, and for each /5(8).
