== Table of content of thesis ==
=== Introduction ===
=== Background ===
* The literature review section of my rapport d'avancement covers about 60% of work that I will cover in my doctoral thesis
=== Theoretical treatment of incompatible substructure problem ===
* SWARM2015 conference paper presents initial findings of yield predictions [published]
* Extended yield predictions journal paper [not yet published]
=== Approaches to solve the incompatible substructure problem ===
===== Self-assembly =====
* TODO: Tune the magnetism of the components such that the fully formed target structures are stable, but substructures are susceptible to breakage
===== Changing geometry =====
* [Published: PPSN]
===== Conformational switching =====
* TODO: Close to final design of components
===== Use of high inertia components =====
* Successfully conducted preliminary experiments
* TODO: Define experiment and collect data
* Massimo suggested, and I agree, that I write an "approaches to the yield predictions" paper. In that paper, I would include the aforementioned approaches. [not yet published]
===== Dipole codes =====
* [Published: Theoretical Computer Science]
=== Dynamics of aggregating / self-assembling systems ===
* Nicolas has developed visual tracking system and used it to find:
** Time evolution of aggregation
** Distance distribution
** Velocity distribution
* Collaboration with Korean Institute of Science and Technology [Leon Abelmann, Tijmen Hageman, etc.]
** Found the different energy regimes for our aggregating system
** Established that outside the ballistic regime, the components perform "random walk"
*** The data neatly fits into a Rayleigh distribution
* TODO: Get new camera, re-analyse data
* TODO: Write a "methodology" style paper
=== Conclusions ===
* Contribution 1: Theoretical analysis of parallel assembly vis-a-vis the incompatible substructure problem
* Contribution 2: 5 approaches to avoid the incompatible substructure problem
* Contribution 3: Study of the dynamics of aggregation / parallel assembly
