As they do in many other fields, numerical techniques can play an important role in the development of our knowledge of chemical systems evolving far from equilibrium. When the macroscopic aspect of their behavior is the only one under consideration, classical numerical integration techniques give us the solution of dynamical equations. Indeed, concentrations are basically the variables that describe the state of the system and systems of nonlinear differential equations result as a complete description of the dynamics of the system.
