• Evolutionary membrane computing: A comprehensive survey and new results

      Zhang, G.; Gheorghe, Marian; Pan, L.Q.; Perez-Jimenez, M.J. (2014-09)
      Evolutionary membrane computing is an important research direction of membrane computing that aims to explore the complex interactions between membrane computing and evolutionary computation. These disciplines are receiving increasing attention. In this paper, an overview of the evolutionary membrane computing state-of-the-art and new results on two established topics in well defined scopes (membrane-inspired evolutionary algorithms and automated design of membrane computing models) are presented. We survey their theoretical developments and applications, sketch the differences between them, and compare the advantages and limitations. (C) 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
