A Models and Theories of Life
A variety of numerical and chemical models have been proposed as analogies and simulators of the evolution and functioning of early life. Because each model emphasizes a different aspect of life and because they were followed by a variety of clone models, their interpretation and relevance is continually debated and no review is truly comprehensive. The present material is not an exhaustive list of all models of life, nor is it a detailed discussion of each one of them. It is rather organized to display a wide variety of models and objectives. I start by presenting an interpretation listing the most general features of early life evolution and continue with a couple of better known models of early life.
