About this book

Like quantum computing or DNA computing, membrane computing is an unconventional model of computation associated with a new computing paradigm. The field of membrane computing was initiated in 1998 by the author of this book; it is a branch of natural computing inspired by the structure and functioning of the living cell and devises distributed parallel computing models in the form of membrane systems, also called P systems.
This book is the first monograph surveying the new field in a systematic and coherent way. It presents the central notions and results: the main classes of P systems, the main results about their computational power and efficiency, a complete bibliography, and a series of open problems and research topics. Thus, the book is indispensible reading for anybody interested in molecular computing.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The subject of this book is the new computing model known as P-systems (honoring the initiator of the model who is the author of this book) and also as membrane systems. … the book introduces complexity classes of problems that are suitable for membrane systems. It also provides many open problems in such membrane complexity theory. … The book has extensive references, open problems and many ideas for further development." (Natasha Jonoska, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1034, 2004)
