We now come back to discrete variables und study chemical reactions. Chemical reaction kinetics deals with the time evolution of chemical reactions and the fluctuations of the number of reaction partners in equilibrium. We restrict ourselves to homogeneous, closed systems. Then the relevant variables are the particle numbers N k(t) of the various substances that participate in the reaction.
