This chapter considers P systems with active membranes, a model of membrane systems able to modify their underlying structure while computing: membranes, and related compartments, can be created or dissolved. This chapter describes how some biological process and phenomena have been of inspiration for the description of models of membrane systems that in turn allowed the definition of new computational complexity classes. The chapter presents results concerning the computational complexity of the resulting abstract systems.

Keywords:   P systems with active membranes, dissolution rules, P, NP, PSPACE, Brane calculi
