Busi, Nadia (ed.) et al., Proceedings of the first workshop on membrane computing and biologically inspired process calculi (MeCBIC 2006), S. Servolo, Venice, Italy, July 9, 2006. Amsterdam: Elsevier. Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science 171, No. 2, 55-67 (2007).
Summary: In this work an extension of stochastic \(\pi\)-calculus with biological transactions is presented. This permits to model multi-reactant multi-product reactions as atomic actions when quantitative information are given. First, the syntax and the semantics are defined, then some transaction properties are discussed. Finally, some examples are described.
