Imagine that we have a piece of matter that can change its physical properties like its shape, density, conductivity, or color in a programmable fashion based on either user input or autonomous sensing. This is the vision behind what is commonly known as programmable matter. Envisioning systems of nano-sensors devices, programmable matter consists of systems of simple computational elements, called particles, that can establish and release bonds, compute, and can actively move in a self-organized way. In this dissertation the feasibility of solving fundamental problems relevant for programmable matter is investigated. As a model for such self-organizing particle systems (SOPS), …

This report investigates the improvement in the transmission throughput, when fountain codes are used in opportunistic data routing, for a proposed delay tolerant network to connect remote and isolated communities in the Amazon region in Brazil, to the main city of that area. To extend healthcare facilities to the remote and isolated communities, on the banks of river Amazon in Brazil, the network  utilizes regularly schedules boats as data mules to carry data from one city to other. Frequent thunder and rain storms, given state of infrastructure and harsh geographical terrain; all contribute to increase in chances of massages …
