Abstract:

Reaction systems are a model of computation inspired by the functioning
of the living cell. They formalize the interactions between biochemical
reactions that form the basic mechanism (the skeleton) underlying this
functioning. This paper is a tutorial-style introduction to reaction systems
– it introduces the basic notions, and reviews a number of research
directions which are motivated either by biological considerations, or
by the need to understand the basic formal processes (computations)
underlying the dynamic behavior of reaction systems.
