Abstract

The significance and relevance of the topics being discussed in this text is under scored by Westerhoff’s (2000) suggestion that biochemistry is poised to make major advances in this century, similar to those made in physics in the 20th century. He anticipates that, to understand the nonlinear kinetic interactions between molecules and interpret the vast quantities of data becoming available, biochemistry may soon become as computation-intensive as elementary particle physics. The papers in this book should contribute to that process.
