Generalised Modelling: Turning Graphs into Models
Turning Graphs into Models --
Generalized modelling of network dynamics
Over the last decade advances in experimental techniques have revealed huge amonts of information on important real world networks such as metabolic or gene regulatory nets. However, the extensive data that has been obtained paints essentially a static picture of these systems while their functioning is strongly related to dynamics.
It is therefore a major challenge to turn the available topological information into dynamical models. Generalized modelling is a new approach that enables us to study certain dynamical properties of complex heterogeneous networks very efficiently. The major advantage of this approach is that it requires only topological information; it is not necessary to restrict the processes in the network to specific rate laws, which are often not known. I will illustrate this approach by examples (and results) from several disciplines, ranging from chinese dynasties via ecological food webs to photosynthesis.
