In nature there are millions of distinct networks of chemical reactions that might present themselves for study at one time or another. Written at the level of elementary reactions taken with classical mass action kinetics, each new network gives rise to its own (usually large) system of polynomial equations for the species concentrations. In this way, chemistry presents a huge and bewildering array of polynomial systems, each determined in a precise way by the underlying network up to parameter values (e.g., rate constants).
