About this book

This book is the first monograph surveying the new field in a systematic and coherent way. It presents the central notions and results: the main classes of P systems, the main results about their computational power and efficiency, a complete bibliography, and a series of open problems and research topics.

From the reviews: "The subject of this book is the new computing model known as P-systems (honoring the initiator of the model who is the author of this book) and also as membrane systems. ! the book introduces complexity classes of problems that are suitable for membrane systems. It also provides many open problems in such membrane complexity theory. ! The book has extensive references, open problems and many ideas for further development." (Natasha Jonoska, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1034, 2004)
