Modular combinations of Artificial Chemistries

We introduce a modularisation of artificial chemistries (AChems). This allows us to define a standard linking method between AChems. We illustrate the approach with a system that nests a Jordan Algebra AChem (JA AChem) inside agents of SwarmChem, and show how our modular approach allows us to define and experiment with multiple variants in a standard manner. Potential for future formalisation is discussed.
