Initial work on re-implementing a computational model of autopoiesis was carried out by a former student of McMullin, Hyder Aswad. We am also grateful to Francoise Jullien and John Mingers for making available their independent re-implementations of the model of . Ms. Marita Prandoni and Ms. Peggy Jones provided invaluable assistance in translating original documents from Spanish. All errors in the current paper remain, of course, our own responsibility.
This paper was written while McMullin was a visiting researcher (1996/97) with the Swarm Project Group at the Santa Fe Institute. This visit was made possible by generous support from Dublin City University and the Swarm Project. Swarm has been supported by Grant No. N00014-94-1-G014 from the Department of the Navy, Naval Research Laboratory, acting in cooperation with the Advanced Research Projects Agency. Swarm has also benefited from earlier support from The Carol O'Donnell Foundation and from Mr. and Mrs. Michael Grantham.
