This is an outstanding result, practically unreachable by means of conventional design methods. Similar results were observed by those doing evolutionary design in FPTA , liquid crystals  and some other unconventional platforms. 3 Scalability Problems The scalability problem has been identiﬁed as the most important problem from the point of view of practical applicability of evolvable hardware. The scalability of representation means that long chromosomes which are usually required to represent complex solutions imply large search spaces that are typically diﬃcult to search.
Simplify the notation by eliminating the use of indices. 18 P. Prusinkiewicz A B c c ci-1 ci ci+1 x x Fig. 2. Continuous (A) and discrete (B) model of diﬀusion in a ﬁlament Let us consider diﬀusion in a ﬁlament as an example of the diﬀerence between traditional and L-system-based description of a physical process. Diﬀusion is often viewed as a spatially and temporally continuous process (Figure 2A), described in one dimension by the partial diﬀerential equation ∂c ∂2c = D 2, ∂t ∂x (1) where c is the concentration of the diﬀusing substance and D is the diﬀusion constant.
5 Conclusions In this paper, we have surveyed the fundamental principles of evolvable hardware, introduced main problems of the ﬁeld and mentioned the most successful applications. Proposed theoretical analysis of evolvable hardware which was conducted from the perspective of computer science should help in understanding of what we can obtain from a design method that utilizes the evolutionary design instead of conventional design techniques. Finally, we have shown that adaptive hardware does not reﬂect the computational scenario of a standard Turing machine.
