Geometry of nonequilibrium reaction networks

  title={Geometry of nonequilibrium reaction networks},
  author={Sara Dal Cengio and Vivien Lecomte and Matteo Polettini},
Building on Kirchho ff ’s treatment of electrical circuits, Hill and Schnakenberg –among others– proposed a celebrated theory for the thermodynamics of Markov processes and linear biochemical networks that exploited tools from graph theory to build fundamental nonequilibrium observables. However, such simple geometrical interpretation does not carry through for arbitrary chemical reaction networks because reactions can be many-to-many and are thus represented by a hypergraph, rather than a… 



Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics of Chemical Reaction Networks: Wisdom from Stochastic Thermodynamics

We build a rigorous nonequilibrium thermodynamic description for open chemical reaction networks of elementary reactions. Their dynamics is described by deterministic rate equations satisfying mass

Stoichiometric network theory for nonequilibrium biochemical systems.

For sufficiently small flux a linear relationship between J and deltamu can be established as the linear flux-force relation in irreversible thermodynamics, analogous to Ohm's law in electrical circuits.

Irreversible thermodynamics of open chemical networks. I. Emergent cycles and broken conservation laws.

The steady state entropy production rate is decompose in terms of fundamental fluxes and affinities in the spirit of Schnakenberg's theory of network thermodynamics, paving the way for the forthcoming treatment of the linear regime, of efficiency and tight coupling, of free energy transduction, and of thermodynamic constraints for network reconstruction.

Stochastic and Quantum Thermodynamics of Driven RLC Networks

A general stochastic thermodynamics of RLC electrical networks built on top of a graph-theoretical representation of the dynamics commonly used by engineers is developed, which is used to generalize the Landauer-Buttiker formula for energy currents to arbitrary time-dependent driving protocols.

Dynamical mean-field theory: from ecosystems to reaction networks

Both natural ecosystems and biochemical reaction networks involve populations of heterogeneous agents whose cooperative and competitive interactions lead to a rich dynamics of species’ abundances,

Product-Form Poisson-Like Distributions and Complex Balanced Reaction Systems

It is established that a network is stochastically complex balanced if and only if an associated deterministic network is complex balanced (in the deterministic sense), thereby proving a strong link between the theory of stochastic and deterministic networks.

Multiple Equilibria in Complex Chemical Reaction Networks: II. The Species-Reaction Graph

A new graph-theoretical method is suggested for discriminating between complex reaction networks that can admit multiple equilibria and those that cannot, which associates with each network a species-reaction graph, which is similar to reaction network representations drawn by biochemists.

Conservation laws and work fluctuation relations in chemical reaction networks.

The topological properties of the CRN and its conservation laws are shown to play a crucial role in decomposing the entropy production into a potential change and two work contributions, the first due to time dependent changes in the externally controlled chemostats concentrations and the second due to flows maintained across the system by nonconservative forces.

Stoichiometric network analysis

The approach leads to theorems showing that some steady states are globally attracting or, possibly, that a region containing chaos or an oscillation is globally attracting.
