Chaotic dynamics and fractal space in biochemistry: simplicity underlies complexity

Aon, Miguel A., Cortassa, Sonia and Lloyd, David 2000. Chaotic dynamics and fractal space in biochemistry: simplicity underlies complexity. Cell Biology International 24 (8) , pp. 581-587. 10.1006/cbir.2000.0572

In this work we attempt to analyze the coupling between the dynamics of biochemical reactions (especially chaotic dynamics), and the geometry of cytoarchitecture (especially fractal ultrastructure), because of its importance and consequences for the ultradian dynamic behaviour of cells. Fractal geometry in intracellular macromolecular assemblies suggests that chaotic dynamics occur during their organization. Non-linear interactions in and between spatial and temporal domains and over wide ranges of scales underlie the emergent properties of complex biological systems.
