  title={Time-free solution to independent set problem using P systems with active membranes},
  author={Yu Jin and Bosheng Song and Yanyan Li and Ying Zhu},
Membrane computing is a branch of natural computing aiming to abstract computing models from the structure and functioning of living cells. The computation models obtained in the field of membrane computing are usually called P systems. P systems have been used to solve computationally hard problems efficiently on the assumption that the execution of each rule is completed in exactly one time-unit (a global clock is assumed for timing and synchronizing the execution of rules). However, in… Expand

Computationally universal P systems without priorities: two catalysts are sufficient
The original model of P systems with symbol objects introduced by Paun was shown to be computationally universal, provided that catalysts and priorities of rules are used. By reduction via registerExpand
Contextual array grammars with matrix control, regular control languages, and tissue P systems control
We consider d-dimensional contextual array grammars and investigate their computational power when using various control mechanisms – matrices, regular control languages, and tissue P systems, whichExpand
A Survey of Nature-Inspired Computing
The state-of-the-art computability theory and a pioneering computational complexity theory are presented with P system frameworks and numerous solutions to hard computational problems via P systems with membrane division are reported. Expand
A return to stochasticity and probability in spiking neural P systems
Results found that the stochastic process introduced to the nondeterministic selection of firing rules also applies to application of rules in general whether the rule is for firing or forgetting and whether a single rule is applicable or multiple. Expand
Monodirectional Evolutional Symport Tissue P Systems With Promoters and Cell Division
Monodirectional tissue P systems with promoters are natural inspired parallel computing paradigms, where only symport rules are permitted, and with the restriction of “monodirectionality”, objectsExpand
Monodirectional Tissue P Systems With Promoters
It is proved that monodirectional tissue working in the flat maximally parallel mode characterizes regular sets of natural numbers and different uniform solutions to the Boolean satisfiability problem (SAT problem) are provided. Expand
The computational power of monodirectional tissue P systems with symport rules
Results show that with the restrictive condition of “monodirectionality”, M TS P systems are still computationally powerful, and with the powerful computational power, developing membrane algorithms for MTS P systems is potentially exploitable. Expand
Bounding the space in P systems with active membranes
Two natural bounds are considered: the amount of available physical space (in terms of the number of objects and membranes) and the organization of the membranes structure (in particular, concerning the depth of the membrane structure); the main results obtained so far are presented. Expand
Simulation challenges in membrane computing
The state of the art at these levels of abstraction is surveyed: graphical user interfaces, simulation engines and parallel implementations and the main challenges under consideration for future developments are discussed. Expand
