Signed Integer Arithmetic on Spiking Neural P System


Article Preview

Spiking neural P systems are a new computing model incorporating the ideas of spiking neurons into membrane computing. It has been shown that they have powerful computational capability and potential capability in solving computationally hard problems. The paper describes the implementation of signed integer arithmetic operations on spiking neural P system with the inputs and outputs encoded as appropriate sequences of spikes. The present work may be considered as the basis for more complex applications, maybe for constructing computer chips or for solving general mathematical problems.
