  journal={Theor. Comput. Sci.},
The original model of P systems with symbol objects introduced by P ̆ aun was shown to be computationally universal, provided that catalysts and priorities of rules are used. By reduction via register machines Sosík and Freund proved that the priorities may be omitted from the model without loss of computational power. Freund, Oswald, and Sosík considered several variants of P systems with catalysts (but without priorities) and investigated the number of catalysts needed for these specific… CONTINUE READING
