Modeling Approaches for Simulating Molecular Communications
Molecular communication involves biological entities that are able to transmit and receive molecules, which represent the information signal.
The molecular communications (MolCom) represent an emerging research area that consists of transmission of information by means of exchange of molecules, carried out by either natural or artificial nanomachines. The physical mechanisms that allow transferring information at such small scales are typically inspired by the biological mechanisms that exist in living bodies to exchange many types of signaling molecules, such as proteins, pheromones, and immune system activation signals, both within and between different cells. The diffusion-based MolCom are the most studied mechanisms; they are based on the molecule propagation in the fluid medium according to the laws of diffusion (Philibert, 2006), without the...
