## Abstract

In Chapter 7 we discussed, briefly, origins of the Deficiency Zero Theorem. There we introduced the idea of *complex balancing*, a major generalization by Horn and Jackson [109] of an earlier related idea, *detailed balancing*. We also hinted at connections of both ideas to classical thermodynamics. In this chapter we will elaborate on thermodynamic roots underlying arguments to come, largely to provide motivation for purely mathematical proof techniques that might otherwise seem improvisatory.
