Spiking Neural P Systems for Arithmetic Operations
ABSTRACT Recently, Gutierrez-Naranjo and Leporati considered performing basic arithmetic operations on a new class of bioinspired computing devices -- spiking neural P systems (for short, SN P systems). However, the binary encoding mechanism used in their research looks like the encoding approach in electronic circuits, instead of the style of spiking neurons (in usual SN P systems, information are encoded as the time interval between spikes). In this work, three SN P systems are constructed as adder, subtracter and multiplier, respectively. In these devices, a number is inputted to the system as the interval of time elapsed between two spikes received by input neuron, the result of a computation is the time between the moments when the output neuron spikes.
