Natural computing (NC) is an emerging area of research that investigates computing techniques and models inspired by nature on one hand, and it also investigates phenomena taking place in nature in terms of computational methodologies on the other hand. Thus, research in NC congenitally has interdisciplinary flavor, which bridges between computer science and various disciplines of natural science. Because of its interdisciplinary nature, NC connects and covers a broad spectrum of fundamental research fields including biology, chemistry, physics, medical science, and so forth. In this article, we give a concise introduction to the new computing paradigm of NC. Specifically, we give an overview of selected topics of the fields from theory to experiments, where the stress is primarily put on theoretical achievements in computing paradigms called molecular computing and chemical reaction computing.
