On the Concepts of Parallelism in Biomolecular Computing

Remco Loos, Bendek Nagy


In this paper we consider DNA and membrane computing, both as theoretical models and as problem solving devices. The basic motivation behind these models of natural computing is using parallelism to make hard problems tractable. In this paper we analyze the concept of parallelism. We will show that parallelism has very different meanings in these models.We introduce the terms ’or-parallelism’ and ’and-parallelism’ for these two basic types of parallelism.
