Molecular Computation Models: Unconventional Approaches.
Molecular computation models; unconventional approaches.
Ed. by Marian Gheorghe.
Idea Group Publishing
Computer scientists, electrical engineers, and biologists from Europe, Canada, and China contribute nine chapters which explore new computational paradigms from both a theoretical and modeling perspective. They present an overview of several areas of natural computing by revealing the problems that are most researched; analyze and suggest interactions between different approaches to the same biological phenomena; discuss variants of classical concepts such as dynamical systems in unconventional settings (e.g., programming paradigms using evolutionary developments); review aspects of modelling; and highlight the advantages of using hybrid complex unconventional models to express complex interactions in complex biological entities such as bacteria. The book will be especially useful for researchers in computational or systems biology who are developing new models and looking at new mathematical or theoretical properties of them. There is no index.
