Impact of Membrane Computing and P Systems in ISI WoS. Celebrating the 65th Birthday of Gheorghe Păun

Ioan Dzitac


Membrane Computing is a branch of Computer Science initiated by Gheorghe Păun in 1998, in a technical report of Turku Centre for Computer Science published as a journal paper ("Computing with Membranes" in Journal of Computer and System Sciences) in 2000. Membrane systems, as Gheorghe Păun called the models he has introduced, are known nowadays as "P Systems" (with the letter P coming from the initial of the name of this research area "father"). This note is an overview of the impact in ISI WoS of Gheorghe Păun’s works, focused on Membrane Computing and P Systems field, on the occasion of his 65th birthday anniversary.
