This chapter presents one of the most studied models of membrane systems: P systems with symport/antiport. Their simple and elegant method of operation has caught the interest of many researchers and several papers have been written on this model or inspired by the operations used by it. Some studied issues related to descriptional complexity, others considered restricted ways in which operations can be performed, others used these operations on other platforms, etc. All in all, it would be very possible to write a monograph dedicated only to P systems with symport/antiport. This chapter gives an overview and provides the proofs of the latest results on this model.

Keywords:   P systems, symport/antiport, trace languages, small number of symbols, tissue P systems
