Introduction to Steady-State Systems
In the first two chapters we have discussed certain topics that are fundamental for equilibrium systems, especially binding. In this chapter we introduce simple steady-state systems. Chapters 4 and 5 will continue with somewhat more complicated equilibrium and steady-state systems, but without explicit introduction of interaction free energies. Then, in Parts II and III, we turn to the main theme of the book: systems of both classes comprised of subsystems that interact with each other, with the interactions treated explicitly.
