The Structure of Complex Networks

Oxford University Press

This chapter is divided into three parts. The first analyses the network of man-made organic reactions. The second is devoted to network chemical reactions in the atmospheres of astronomical bodies such as planets and satellites in the solar system. The third examines reaction networks inside living organisms, i.e., metabolic networks. In all three parts, the role of network theory in understanding chemical, physical, or biological processes is emphasized, and special attention is given to the misunderstanding of several concepts that have led to the misuse of network theory.

Keywords:   organic reactions network, atmospheric reaction networks, atmospheric chemistry, metabolic networks, metabolic pathways, inverse ecology
