In biological systems formed by living cells, the small populations of some reactant species can result in dynamical behavior which cannot be captured by the traditional reaction rate equations. In that case, a more accurate simulation can be obtained by using the machinery of Markov process theory, specifically the Stochastic Simulation Algorithm (SSA). Since for realistic, practical biochemical systems the simulation by the SSA carries a high computational cost, several formulations have been… CONTINUE READING
