 Closure Spaces
The concept of uniquely generated closure spaces has begun to be studied as a common thread emerging in computer applications, in graphs, and in discrete geometries.
The importance of uniquely generated closure spaces lies in the fact that in discrete systems they play a role that is in many respects analogous to the vector spaces of classical mathematics.
Algorithmic closure, in particular that of greedy algorithms is found in [KLS91] which introduces the term ``greedoid'', a special kind of antimatroid.

 VisualWorks: Closures   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Peter, as befits a professor of theoretical computer science, doesn't have a computer and doesn't read email :) :) (at least that was the case in '92).
Scheme made closures purely lexical; in Lisp 1.5, you closed a lambda in the environment where you explicitly minted the closure, ALists were used for bindings, and the code itself was just a list too.
For our purposes we can define a closure as the combination of a function-procedure (some code that takes zero or more arguments, may have side-effects, and returns a result) with an environment (a set of bindings from names to values, or in Smalltalk's case from names to objects).

 Science/AAAS | Editors' Choice : 20 October 2006; 314 (5798)
One way to simulate a complex phenomenon such as the flocking of birds is to build a detailed computer model that incorporates the motion of all individuals as well as rules for their interaction.
As Liu and Tsui explain, such computing models have been labeled "nature-inspired" because they are truly analogous to the way birds flock or ants in a colony engage in purposeful collective behavior.
The basic entities in such a model (which could be either software modules or actual hardware robots with internal software) are self-organized, most strongly influenced by local interactions, and capable of adapting their behavior in response to a changing environment.

 Neal Gafter's blog: Nominal Closures for Java (version 0.2)
Closures provide a natural way to express some kinds of abstraction that are currently quite awkward to express in Java.
Examples would be when the closure is passed to another thread, or stored in a data structure to be invoked at a later time when the method invocation in which the closure originated no longer exists.
The reason is that accessing dynamically scoped values (which closures of dynamic extent are) outside their dynamic scope is fatal for a stack-based VM, so either the bytecode verifier or the VM itself must enforce that values of dynamic extent are never stored in locations that aren't also of dynamic extent.

 What is a closure?
Closure is an operation that can be applied to an expression.
A closure creates a function, which is returned as the result of the closure process.
In the general situation we could have a function f with n arguments, a1,a2,...,an and desire to form a closure by binding a particular argument or set of particular arguments.

Abstract: This is an ongoing project to emulate biological intelligence in a computer.

Biomolecular computing is a field that seeks to harness and expand the powerful toolbox of chemical and enzymatic processes for manipulating biomolecules, with the goal of exploiting these processes as a means performing computational tasks.
It is fair to say, however, that the recent results from theoretical computer science that attempt to exploit quantum mechanical principles for both computation and cryptography have been a great stimulus to our understanding the implications and meaning of several fundamental quantum mechanical phenomena, such as superposition of states, decoherence, and EPR pairs.
However, even as computer memories become cheaper and multiprocessor machines become larger and faster, our desire for larger and more sophisticated astronomical simulations outstrips them and new algorithms and data structures appear to be required, ones that can be tuned to exploit the computer architecture that is to be used for the simulation.
