Local and global stability of biochemical reaction network
Dynamics
Gheorghe Craciun
Modern biological research provides countless examples of
biochemical interaction networks. For example, at the
intracellular
level, the nodes of these interaction networks could be
signaling
molecules, genes, and gene products. In order to
understand the
role played by some of these interactions one often faces
great
difficulties in trying to interpret the effect of positive
and
negative feedbacks, nonlinear interactions, and other
complex
signaling between the nodes of the network. We will
analyze the
connections between reaction network structure and the
capacity for
complex dynamic behavior. These connections may play an
important
role in facilitating the understanding of experimental
data.
