Summary. Energy plays an important role in many theoretical computational models. In this paper we review some results we have obtained in the last few years concerning the computational power of two variants of P systems that manipulate energy while performing their computations: energy-based and UREM P systems. In the former, a fixed amount of energy is associated to each object, and the rules transform objects by manipulating their energy. We show that if we assign local priorities to the rules, then energ…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
