Artificial chemistries can be found in fields beyond chemistry and biology. While it is most natural to look at examples from these fields, the self-assembly of entities at different scales can be modeled with ACs. Reactions at smaller scales, like elementary particles or processes in nuclear physics can be similarly modeled from an AC perspective. Even economic and social systems, with interactions based on communication and trade can be modeled with ACs. This chapter will show some examples from the breadth of other fields.

Keywords:   Belief systems, Communication systems, Economic systems, Electron, Nuclear reactions, Nucleosynthesis, Proton, Self-assembly, Social order, Von Neumann matrix
