      Improving Universality Results on Parallel Enzymatic Numerical P Systems  [Presentation]

      Leporati, Alberto; Porreca, Antonio E.; Zandron, Claudio; Mauri, Giancarlo (Fénix Editora, 2013)
      We improve previously known universality results on enzymatic numerical P systems (EN P systems, for short) working in all-parallel and one-parallel modes. By using a attening technique, we rst show that any EN P ...

      On Controlled P Systems  [Presentation]

      Krithivasan, Kamala; Paun, Gheorghe; Ramanujan, Ajeesh (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]

      Graciani Díaz, Carmen; Gutiérrez Naranjo, Miguel Ángel; Riscos Núñez, Agustín (Fénix Editora, 2013)
      The Rete algorithm is a well-known algorithm in rule-based production systems which builds directed acyclic graphs that represent higher-level rule sets. This allows the rule-based systems to avoid complete re-evaluation ...
