Attribution of biological robustness to the specific structural properties of a regulatory network is an important yet unsolved problem in systems biology. It is widely believed that the topological characteristics of a biological control network largely determine its dynamic behavior, yet the actual mechanism is still poorly understood. Here, we define a(More)
One of the major objectives in systems biology is to understand the relation between the topological structures and the dynamics of biological regulatory networks. In this context, various mathematical tools have been developed to deduct structures of regulatory networks from microarray expression data. In general, from a single data set, one cannot deduct(More)
The integer quantum Hall effect (IQHE) is usually modeled by a Galilean or rotationally invariant Hamiltonian. These are not generic symmetries for electrons moving in a crystal background and can potentially confuse non-topological quantities with topological ones and identify otherwise distinct geometrical properties. In this thesis we present a generic(More)
In a ferroin-catalyzed Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction-diffusion system with reagent concentration gradients, we observed in the experiment a type of spirals with local waves forming groups. Here, we propose an interpretation of the wave grouping phenomenon. The wave grouping mechanism can be well explained in terms of the cooperation of the excitability(More)
