Mass-action kinetics are used in chemistry and chemical engineering to describe the dynamics of systems of chemical reactions, that is, reaction networks. These models are a special form of compartmental systems, which involve mass- and energy-balance relations. Aside from their role in chemical engineering applications, mass-action kinetics have numerous analytical properties that are of inherent interest from a dynamical systems perspective. Because of physical considerations, however, mass… 
Engineering Model Reduction and Entropy-based Lyapunov Functions in Chemical Reaction Kinetics
In this paper, the structural properties of chemical reaction systems obeying the mass action law are investigated and related to the physical and chemical properties of the system. An entropy-based
Mass action realizations of reaction kinetic system models on various time scales
Complex chemical reaction networks often exhibit different dynamic behaviour on different time scales. A combined approach is proposed in this work for determining physically meaningful mass action
The Induced Kinetic Differential Equation
This chapter focuses on the formal analysis of the most relevant model describing the time evolution of concentrations of reactions. This model is deterministic; both the time and the state space are
Routes to Multiple Equilibria for Mass-Action Kinetic Systems
It is proved that deficiency-one networks can only admit multiple equilibria via folding of the equilibrium manifold, whereas a bifurcation leading to multiple branches is only possible in networks with deficiencies larger than one.
Reaction kinetic form for lumped process system models
Abstract The class of isotherm lumped process systems with constant overall mass in each of its balance volumes is considered in this paper. It is shown that the convection and transfer mechanisms
Reaction network realizations of rational biochemical systems and their structural properties
A frequently used representation of mass-action type reaction networks is extended to a more general system class where the reaction rates are in rational function form and it is shown that under some technical assumptions, the so-called dense realization containing the maximal number of reactions, forms a super-structure.
Model analysis and parameter estimation in biochemical reaction networks
The concepts of chemical reaction network theory are extended for biochemical reactions and a model reduction method for large scale kinetic networks is proposed, and a global optimization method is proposed together with regularization techniques.
On The Geometry of Equilibrium Solutions of Kinetic Systems Obeying the Mass Action Law
In this contribution the problem relating dynamic behavior and parameter values for weakly reversible chemical reaction networks (CRNs) that obey the mass action law is revisited. The approach is


Graph-theoretic methods for the analysis of chemical and biochemical networks. I. Multistability and oscillations in ordinary differential equation models
Two theorems originally given by A. N. Ivanova are proved which correlate the bifurcation structure of a mass-action model to the properties of a bipartite graph with nodes representing chemical species and reactions.

Mass action kinetics have numerous analytical properties that are of inherent interest from a dynamical systems perspective. We provide a general construction of the kinetic equation from reaction
The existence and uniqueness of steady states for a class of chemical reaction networks
My purpose here is to draw some general relationships between the structure of a chemical reaction network and the nature of the set of equilibrium states for the corresponding system of nonlinear

This work obtains a nonunitary (‘star unitary’), invertible, nondistributive operator Λ (which reduces to the unitary transformation operator U for integrable systems), and shows that irreversible processes and entropy production correspond to irreversible processes creating entropy.
Qualitative Theory of Compartmental Systems
The authors complete the solution of a problem posed by Bellman and show that closed nonlinear, autonomous, n-compartment systems can show the full gamut of possible behaviors of systems of ODES.
Graph-theoretic methods for the analysis of chemical and biochemical networks. II. Oscillations in networks with delays
Delay-differential equations are used to model genetic regulatory systems with the delays representing transcription and translation times and also to represent other types of chemical processes, including species-reaction bipartite graph methods, which are particularly convenient and powerful.
Compartmental modelling and second-moment analysis of state space systems
Compartmental models involve nonnegative state variables that exchange mass, energy, or other quantities in accordance with conservation laws. Such models are widespread in biology and economics. In
The chemical Langevin equation
The stochastic dynamical behavior of a well-stirred mixture of N molecular species that chemically interact through M reaction channels is accurately described by the chemical master equation. It is
A Family of Sparse Polynomial Systems Arising in Chemical Reaction Systems
The positive steady states of chemical reaction systems modeled by mass action kinetics are investigated and it is shown that the simplest cases are equivalent to binomial systems and are explained with the help of toric varieties.
