Abstract

In this paper we face the spatial difficulties inherent to the simulation of P systems on conventional (von Neumann) computers when they are applied to solve real problems. We have extended P Lingua (a well known textual programming language for P systems) to access distributed resources by means of Hadoop (a freely available implementation of the MapReduce paradigm). The current work shows the way that we propose to develop distributed, general purpose simulators for P systems.
