Stability and robustness of asymptotic autocatalytic systems
MetadataShow full item record
Here, we address the consequences of the extension in the space of a simple model of a system that is closed to efficient causation: the (M,R)-system model. To do so, we use a diffusion term to describe the collective motion of the nutrients' concentration across the compartmentalized space that defines the organism. We show that the non-trivial stable steady state remains despite such generalization, as long as the system is small enough to deal with the transport of the precursors to feed the entire protocell and dispose of a sufficient concentration of it in its surroundings. Such consideration explains the emergence of a bifurcation with two parameters that we characterize. Finally, we show that the robustness of the system under catastrophic losses of catalysts also remains, preserving the original's model character.
