Dynamic Coupling and Time-Patterns of Glycolysis
The property of self-organization is a fundamental feature of living systems. Macroscopically, it is reflected in the phenomena of evolution, of differentiation and of numerous other biological functions. The quality of organization results from basic thermodynamic and kinetic constraints, to which the occurrence of biological systems is fundamentally bound, and its theoretical frame lies in the concept of dissipative structure as a new science of motion.
