First Steps Towards a CPU Made of Spiking Neural P Systems
AbstractWe consider spiking neural P systems as devices which can be used to perform some basic arithmetic operations, namely addition, subtraction, comparison and multiplica- tion by a fixed factor. The input to these systems are natural numbers expressed in binary form, encoded as appropriate sequences of spikes. A single system accepts as inputs num- bers of any size. The present work may be considered as a first step towards the design of a CPU based on the working of spiking neural P systems.
