On simulating cooperative transition P systems in evolution–communication P systems with energy



In this paper, we investigate simulations of transition P systems (TP systems) in evolution–communication P systems with energy (ECPe systems). We only focus on TP systems where an object that triggers a cooperative rule also triggers a non-cooperative rule. In this way, the presence of a rule trigger always implies that a rule will be applied. In our constructed ECPe systems, a transition in the TP system is simulated by a k-step computation where k is a factor of the cardinality of the alphabet in the original system. Also, the maximum energy needed for communication rules depends on the number of copies of a trigger in a cooperative rule.
