In this paper we present WebPS, an open-source web-enabled simulator for P systems, and a P accelerator for parallelization of the existing sequential simulators. The simulator is based on CLIPS, and it is already available as a web application. The P accelerator is used to parallelize the existing sequential simulators of the P systems. We exemplify this… (More)
Following , we present in this paper various number encodings and operations over multisets. We obtain the most compact encoding and several other interesting encodings and study their properties using elements of combinatorics over multisets. We also construct P systems that implement their associated operations. We quantify the effect of adding order… (More)
We propose a parametric family of measures of fairness in allocations of TU-cooperative games. Their definition is based on generalized Rényi Entropy, is related to the Cowell-Kuga generalized entropy indices in welfare economics, and aims to parallel the spirit of the notion of price of anarchy in the case of convex TU-cooperative games. Since computing… (More)
" The words, the sad words, Sometimes surround the time As a pipe, the water which flows within. " Nichita St˘ anescu Summary. Starting from Shannon theory of information, we present the case of producing information in the form of multisets, and encoding information using multisets. We compute the entropy of a multiset information source by constructing an… (More)
The widespread adoption of the current Grid technologies is still impeded by a number of problems, one of which is difficulty of developing and implementing Grid-enabled applications. In another dimension, symbolic computation, aiming to automatize the steps of mathematical problem solving, has become in the last years a basis for advanced applications in… (More)
In this paper we revise some previously defined non-positional number encodings using multisets and their associated arithmetic operations, describing a general encoding/decoding algorithm that can map natural numbers to their multiset representations, and vice versa. We present the templates for the most compact encodings in base b for successor and… (More)
In this paper we present an open-source web-enabled simulator for P systems. We use CLIPS embedded in C, and make the simulator available as a web application , complemented by a query language to specify the results.
In this paper, we explore how numerical calculations can be accelerated by implementing several numerical methods of fractional-order systems using parallel computing techniques. We investigate the feasibility of parallel computing algorithms and their efficiency in reducing the computational costs over a large time interval. Particularly, we present the… (More)
