Bi-simulation Between P Colonies and P Systems with Multi-stable Catalysts

The general concept, called the formal framework of P systems provides a representation to study and analyze different variants of P systems. In this paper, two well-known models, P colonies and P systems with multi-stable catalysts are considered. We show that the obtained representations are identical, thus both models can be related using a bi-simulation. This fact opens new approaches for studying both P colonies and catalytic P systems.
