Aqueous Simulations of Membrane Computations
A scheme of definitions that formalizes a limited family of membrane
computations is presented. The purpose is to provide a link between one of the
approaches to biomolecular computation, called aqueous computing, and the newly
developing concept of membrane computing, also called P-systems computing. This
link allows one to view the already completed aqueous computations as wet lab
realizations, or test tube simulations, of P-systems computations. It is hoped
that the elementary linkage established here will be expanded and that it will
suggest further developments in both P-systems and aqueous computing.
Keywords: membrane computing, P-systems, aqueous computing, molecular
computing, DNA computing.
