Chocolate P Automata


We introduce several variants of input-driven tissue P automata – we also will call them chocolate automata – where the rules to be applied only depend on the input symbol. Both strings and multisets are considered as input objects; the strings are either read from an input tape or defined by the sequence of symbols taken in, and the multisets are given in an input cell at the beginning of a computation, enclosed in a vesicle. Additional symbols generated during a computation are stored in this vesicle, too. An input is accepted when the vesicle reaches a final cell and it is empty. The computational power of some variants of input-driven tissue P automata (chocolate automata) is illustrated by examples and compared with the power of the input-driven variants of other automata as register machines and counter automata.
