Abstract

The combination of a theoretical model of the living cell and membrane computing suggests a new variant of a computational model based on membrane-enclosed compartments defined and presented in this paper for the first time. This variant is based on simple and basic concepts: conformons, a combination of information and energy; locality of the interactions of conformons, permitted by the presence of membrane-enclosed compartments; communication via conformons between membrane-enclosed compartments. The computational power of this new system is sketched. Possible other variants of this model and links with Petri nets are outlined.
