Abstract

In this article we present a simulator of non-deterministic static P systems using Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology. Its major feature is a high performance, achieving a constant processing time for each transition. Our approach is based on representing all possible applications as words of some regular context-free language. Then, using formal power series it is possible to obtain the number of possibilities and select one of them following a uniform distribution, in a fair and non-deterministic way. According to these ideas, we yield an implementation whose results show an important speed-up, with a strong independence from the size of the P system.
