Dynamic organization in biologically oriented artificial systems
The aim of this chapter is to present some useful examples of self-organized structures in artificial systems that help to visualize concepts needed to interpret dynamic organization in living systems. The term ‘artificial’ refers to analogues of biological systems; for example, systems composed of isolated enzymes (either soluble or immobilized), or isolated biological membranes or organelles, or inorganic systems exhibiting similar properties to biological ones. We attempt to present some models representing the artificial system and the biological analogues with the aim of emphasizing in each case the main conditions that should be fulfilled in order to obtain dynamic organization.
