Chemical and Notational Preliminaries
In this chapter I will provide some chemical preliminaries—essentially, a description of the very natural way that a chemical reaction network induces a system of differential equations—and I will also provide an indication of the kinds of questions we will ask. Finally, at the end of the chapter, I will discuss the notational scheme—one common in graph theory—that is used throughout the book. Although for some readers the scheme might be a little unfamiliar, it is simple and will serve us well over the long run.
