Thermodynamic limit of chemical master equation via nonlinear semigroup

  title={Thermodynamic limit of chemical master equation via nonlinear semigroup},
  author={Yuan Gao and Jian‐Guo Liu},
. Chemical reactions, at a mesoscopic scale, can be modeled by a random time-changed Poisson process on countable states. The macroscopic behaviors in the large size limit, particularly the estimates for the large fluctuations, can be studied via the WKB reformulation, aka. nonlinear semigroup for the chemical master equation(CME) and the backward equation. The WKB reformulation for the backward equation is Varadhan’s discrete nonlinear semigroup and is also a monotone scheme which approximates… 


Regularity and approximability of the solutions to the chemical master equation
The chemical master equation is a fundamental equation in chemical kinetics. It is an ad- equate substitute for the classical reaction-rate equations whenever stochastic eects become relevant. In the
Macroscopic Fluctuation Theory for Stationary Non-Equilibrium States
We formulate a dynamical fluctuation theory for stationary non-equilibrium states (SNS) which is tested explicitly in stochastic models of interacting particles. In our theory a crucial role is
Large Deviations for Stochastic Processes
The notes are devoted to results on large deviations for sequences of Markov processes following closely the book by Feng and Kurtz ([FK06]). We outline how convergence of Fleming's nonlinear
Large fluctuations and optimal paths in chemical kinetics
The eikonal approximation (instanton technique) is applied to the problem of large fluctuations of the number of species in spatially homogeneous chemical reactions with the probability density
On the Relation between Gradient Flows and the Large-Deviation Principle, with Applications to Markov Chains and Diffusion
Motivated by the occurrence in rate functions of time-dependent large-deviation principles, we study a class of non-negative functions ℒ that induce a flow, given by ℒ(ρt,ρ̇t)=0$\mathcal{L} (\rho
Variational structures beyond gradient flows: a macroscopic fluctuation-theory perspective
Macroscopic equations arising out of stochastic particle systems in detailed balance (called dissipative systems or gradient flows) have a natural variational structure, which can be derived from the
The exponential resolvent of a Markov process and large deviations for Markov processes via Hamilton-Jacobi equations
We study the Hamilton-Jacobi equation f - lambda Hf = h, where H f = e^{-f}Ae^f and where A is an operator that corresponds to a well-posed martingale problem. We identify an operator that gives
Mathematical Formalism of Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics for Nonlinear Chemical Reaction Systems with General Rate Law
This paper studies a mathematical formalism of nonequilibrium thermodynamics for chemical reaction models with N species, M reactions, and general rate law. We establish a mathematical basis for J.
Modeling of Chemical Reaction Systems with Detailed Balance Using Gradient Structures
This work considers various modeling levels for spatially homogeneous chemical reaction systems, namely the chemical master equation, the chemical Langevin dynamics, and the reaction-rate equation, and uses the gradient structures to derive hybrid models for coupling different modeling levels.
General mass action kinetics
The principal result of this work shows that there exists a simply identifiable class of kinetic expressions, including the familiar detailed balanced kinetics as a proper subclass, which ensure consistency with the extended thermodynamic conditions.
