Membrane Computing at Twelve Years(Back to Turku)
The talk is a quick introduction to membrane computing, by briefly presenting twelve basic ideas (in the development of which the author was involved - several other ideas deserve to be mentioned), with some emphasis on two recently investigated notions, the spiking neural P systems (SN P systems, for short), inspired from neural biology, and the dP systems, a distributed class of P systems (initially introduced for so-called symport-antiport P systems, but extended also to SN P systems, a case which is discussed here in some details).
