Cell Growth as an Autocatalytic Relaxation Process

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Biomathematics book series (LNBM,volume 39)

Abstract

One of the great merits of the extention of Thermodynamics to non-equilibrium systems achieved through the development of Irreversible Thermodynamics (1) lies in the close connection established between thermodynamic and kinetic aspects of chemical reactions.
