Abstract:

Reaction systems is a model of computation inspired by the functioning of the living cell. It formalizes the interactions between biochemical reactions which 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 of understanding the basic formal processes (computations) underlying the dynamic behavior of reaction systems.
