A logical model of genetic activities in Lukasiewicz algebras: The non-linear theory
A categorical framework for logical models of functional genetic systems is proposed. The logical models of genetic nets are shown to simulate non-linear systems withn-state components and allow for the generalization of previous logical models of neural nets. An algebraic formulation of variable ‘next-state functions’ is presented which can be used for the description of developmental processes.
