%X In this paper, we show a new example of bridging Algebraic Topology, Membrane Computing and Digital Images. In [24], a new algorithm for thinning multi- dimensional black and white digital images by using cell complexes was presented. Such cell complexes allow a discrete partition of the space and the algorithm preserves topolog- ical and geometrical properties of the image. In this paper, we present a parallel adapta- tion of such algorithm to P systems, by introducing some concepts of Algebraic Topology in the Membrane Computing framework. The chosen model for the implementation is tissue-like P systems with promoters, inhibitors and priorities.
