Enumeration of maximal cycles generated by orthogonal cellular automata

Cellular automata (CA) are an interesting computational model for designing pseudorandom number generators (PRNG), due to the complex dynamical behavior they can exhibit depending on the underlying local rule. Most of the CA-based PRNGs proposed …

On the power of boundary rule application in membrane computing

In this paper, it is investigated how different features of membrane systems can be simulated by the boundary rule application. Firstly, it is discussed how the effect of maximally parallel mode can be obtained by non-cooperative boundary rules …

Tissue P systems with evolutional communication rules with two objects in the left-hand side

In the framework of Membrane Computing, several efficient solutions to computationally hard problems have been given. To find new borderlines between families of P systems that can solve them and the ones that cannot is an important task to tackle …

About reversibility in sP colonies and reaction systems

In this paper, we study reversibility in sP colonies and in reaction systems. sP colony is a bio-inspired computational model formed from an environment and a finite set of agents. The current state of the environment is represented by a finite …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Natural Computing refers to computational processes observed in nature, and human-designed computing inspired by nature. When complex natural phenomena are analyzed in terms of computational processes, our understanding of both nature and the essence of computation is enhanced. Characteristic for human-designed computing inspired by nature is the metaphorical use of concepts, principles and mechanisms underlying natural systems. Natural computing includes evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, molecular computing and quantum computing.

The journal Natural Computing provides a forum for discovery in natural computing, offering links among researchers and insight into trends in an emerging specialty. The journal reports on theory, experiments, and applications, and covers natural computing from a very broad perspective, including use of algorithms to consider evolution as a computational process, and neural networks in light of computational trends in brain research.
