We propose a new class of membrane systems, hybrid numerical P Systems. It has been previously shown that numerical P systems and their extension, enzymatic numerical P systems, are universal computing models. Programs can be written by dening a set of rules and a compartmental structure inspired by the transport mechanisms of the cell. The rules and the transport between membranes were originally designed as discrete components. In this paper, we present a novel class of numerical P systems in which we integrate continuous rules into the discrete cellular mechanisms of membrane computing paradigm. Therefore, we dene hybrid numerical P systems, which incorporate both continuous production functions and discrete enzymatic guard conditions. We propose a novel, parallel and exible modeling framework for dynamical hybrid systems.
