Preview Abstract Abstract
Biochemical processes typically involve huge numbers of individual reversible or irreversible steps, each with its own dynamical rate constants. Does the structural complexity of these biochemical networks necessarily result in complex dynamics? I will discuss a few examples where simple, nearly universal stochastic dynamical behaviors emerge from this complexity, and sometimes precisely because of this complexity.
