An Approach to Ballistic Deposition Based on Membrane Computing
Carmen Graciani-Díaz, Miguel A. Gutiérrez-Naranjo and Mario J. Pérez-Jiménez

Ballistic Deposition was proposed by Vold [10] and Sutherland [9] as a model for colloidal aggregation. These early works were later extended to simulate the process of vapour deposition. In general, Ballistic Deposition models involve (d+1)-dimensional particles which rain down sequentially at random onto a d-dimensional substrate; when a particle arrives on the existing agglomeration of deposited particles, it sticks to the first particle it contacts, which may result in lateral growth. In this paper we present a first P system model for Ballistic Deposition with d = 1.
