Analysing Gene Networks with PDP Systems. Arabidopsis thaliana, a Case Study [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)Gene Regulatory Networks (GRNs) are a useful tool for biologists to understand the interactions among genes in living organisms. A special kind of GRNs known as Logic Networks (LNs) has been recently introduced. These ...

Bridging Membrane and Reaction Systems  Further Results and Research Topics [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)This paper continues an investigation into bridging two research areas con cerned with natural computing: membrane computing and reaction systems. More specif ically, the paper considers a transfer of two assumptions/axioms ...

Some Open Problems about Numerical P Systems [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)Some open problems and research topics related to numerical P systems are formulated { also recalling the problems from the corresponding section of the \mega paper produced for the previous BWMC

The "Catalytic Borderline" Between Universality and NonUniversality of P Systems [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)P systems are computing models inspired by the structure and the function ing of the living cells; they are the basic computing devices of membrane computing, a branch of natural computing. The present note is an overview ...

Continuous Versus Discrete: Some Topics with a Regard to Membrane Computing [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)Some questions and open problems are formulated in the context of a dilemma continuous approach versus discrete approach to the investigations of dynamics of complex biological and physical systems with a regard to ...

Simulating a Family of Tissue P Systems Solving SAT on the GPU [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)In order to provide e cient software tools to deal with large membrane systems, highthroughput simulators are required. Parallel computing platforms are good candidates, since they are capable of partially implementing ...

Improving Universality Results on Parallel Enzymatic Numerical P Systems [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)We improve previously known universality results on enzymatic numerical P systems (EN P systems, for short) working in allparallel and oneparallel modes. By using a attening technique, we rst show that any EN P ...

Turing Incompleteness of Asynchronous P Systems with Active Membranes [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)We prove that asynchronous P systems with active membranes without divi sion rules can be simulated by place/transition Petri nets, and hence are computationally weaker than Turing machines. This result holds even if ...

An Application of the PCol Automata in Robot Control [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)The P colonies were introduced in as a variant of the bioinspired com putational models called membrane systems or P systems. In we divided agents into the groups according the function they provide; we introduced the ...

On Controlled P Systems [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)We introduce and brie y investigate P systems with controlled computations. First, P systems with label restricted transitions are considered (in each step, all rules used have either the same label, or, possibly, the ...

Rete Algorithm for P System Simulators [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)The Rete algorithm is a wellknown algorithm in rulebased production systems which builds directed acyclic graphs that represent higherlevel rule sets. This allows the rulebased systems to avoid complete reevaluation ...

Kernel P Systems  Version 1 [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)A basic P system, called kernel P system4 (kP system for short), combining features of di erent P systems introduced and studied so far is de ned and discussed. The structure of such systems is de ned as a dynamic graph, ...

Universal P Systems: One Catalyst Can Be Suficient [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)Whether P systems with only one catalyst can already be universal, is still an open problem. Here we establish universality (computational completeness) by using speci c variants of additional control mechanisms. At each ...

Scenario Based P Systems [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)In this paper we de ne and study Scenario Based P Systems, a model of computation inspired by the metabolic pathways and networks. Starting from the classical de nition of P systems with symbol objects and multiset ...

2D P Colonies and Modelling of Liquid Flow Over the Earth's Surface [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)We continue the investigation of 2D P colonies introduced in [1], a class of abstract computing devices composed of independent agents, acting and evolving in a shared 2D environment where the agents are located. Agents ...

A GPU Simulation for EvolutionCommunication P Systems with Energy Having no Antiport Rules [Presentation]
(Fénix Editora, 2013)EvolutionCommunication P system with energy (ECPe systems) is a cell like variant P system which establishes a dependence between evolution and communi cation through special objects, called `energy,' produced during ...

Studying the Chlorophyll Fluorescence in Cyanobacteria with Membrane Computing Techniques [Presentation]
