Abstract
The concepts of quantum automata and quantum computation are studied in the context of quantum genetics and genetic networks with nonlinear dynamics. In previous publications (Baianu,1971a, b) the formal concept of quantum automaton and quantum computation, respectively, were introduced and their possible implications for genetic processes and metabolic activities in living cells and organisms were considered. This was followed by a report on quantum and abstract, symbolic computation based on the theory of categories, functors and natural transformations (Baianu,1971b; 1977; 1987; 2004; Baianu et al, 2004). The notions of topological semigroup, quantum automaton, or quantum computer, were then suggested with a view to their potential applications to the analogous simulation of biological systems, and especially genetic activities and nonlinear dynamics in genetic networks. Further, detailed studies of nonlinear dynamics in genetic networks were carried out in categories of nvalued, Łukasiewicz Logic Algebras that showed significant dissimilarities (Baianu, 1977; 2004a; Baianu et al, 2004b) from Boolean models of human neural networks (McCullough and Pitts, 1943). Molecular models in terms of categories, functors and natural transformations were then formulated for unimolecular chemical transformations, multimolecular chemical and biochemical transformations (Baianu, 1983, 1987, 2004a). Previous applications of computer modeling, classical automata theory, and relational biology to molecular biology, oncogenesis and medicine were extensively reviewed and several important conclusions were reached regarding both the potential and limitations of the computationassisted modeling of biological systems, and especially complex organisms such as Homo sapiens sapiens (Baianu,1987). Novel approaches to solving the realization problems of Relational Biology models in Complex System Biology are introduced in terms of natural transformations between functors of such molecular categories. Several applications of such natural transformations of functors were then presented to protein biosynthesis, embryogenesis and nuclear transplant experiments. Topoi of Łukasiewicz Logic Algebras and Intuitionistic Logic (Heyting) Algebras are being considered for modeling nonlinear dynamics and cognitive processes in complex neural networks that are present in the human brain, as well as stochastic modeling of genetic networks in Łukasiewicz Logic Algebras.

Additional Information:  It is often assumed incorrectly that Quantum Computation was introduced in 1982 and that Quantum Automata were introduced in 1997. Actually, the formal concepts of Quantum Automata and Quantum Computation were introduced in 1971, in relation to Quantum Genetics (Rosen, 1960) in a paper published in the Bulletin of Mathematical Biophysics, 33:339354 (Baianu, 1971a). There are also numerous citations of Quantum Automata papers printed in the late 80’s and also recent quantum computation textbooks that fail to report the first introduction of the concepts of “quantum automaton” and “quantum computation”. Categorical computations, both algebraic and topological, were also introduced in 1971 (Baianu, 1971b) that propose to employ symbolic programming for adjoint functor pairs in the theory of categories, functors and natural transformations (Baianu, 1971b). The notions of topological semigroup, quantum automaton, or computer, were then suggested for applications and modeling, with a view to their potential applications to the analogous simulation of biological systems, and especially genetic activities and nonlinear dynamics in genetic networks. Further, detailed studies of nonlinear dynamics in genetic networks were carried out in categories of nvalued, Lukasiewicz Logic Algebras that showed significant dissimilarities (Baianu, 1977) from Boolean models of human neural networks (McCullough and Pitts,1943).
