Modelling and simulation of real-life phenomena in Membrane Computing. Modelización y simulación de fenómenos de la vida real en Computación Celular con Membranas.
This document is structured in three parts, whose content is briefly outlined below. Part I: Preliminaries Chapter I familiarizes the reader with the basics of Natural Computing, introducing some classical models in the discipline. Following, it delves into the state of the art of Membrane Computing. Some frameworks including the seminar transition model are discussed. Finally, it contrasts stochastic and probabilistic approaching when modelling real-life phenomena. Chapter II discusses simulators in Membrane Computing and describes the project P-Lingua and the software tool pLinguaCore, which enable experts to describe and simulate P systems automatically. Moreover, some Membrane Computing simulators implemented on ...
