Mini-symposium 9

Algebraic methods for biochemical reaction networks

Tuesday, June 17, 2014


Chalmers Conference Centre, Room Euler


Carsten Conradi (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems)

The mini-symposium will focus on mathematical analysis of reaction networks arising in systems biology. In recent years much progress has been made towards understanding the mathematical aspects of reaction networks using techniques from algebraic geometry and computational algebra. The progress bypasses the need for simulation and highlights the rich mathematical structure that underlies reaction networks. Specifically, the mini-symposium will focus on reaction networks as classes of nonlinear dynamical systems described by systems of ordinary differential equations (ODEs).
