Priami, Corrado and Regev, Aviv and Shapiro, Ehud and Silverman, William (2001) Application of a stochastic name-passing calculus to representation and simulation of molecular processes. UNSPECIFIED.
We describe a novel application of a stochastic name passing calculus for the study of biomolecular systems. We specify the structure and dynamics of biochemical networks in a variant of the stochastic P-calculus, yielding a model which is mathematically welldefined and biologically faithful. We adapt the operational semantics of the calculus to account for both the time and probability of biochemical reactions, and present a computer implementation of the calculus for biochemical simulations.
