ReactionNetworks :: negativeLaplacian

negativeLaplacian -- Computes the negative of the Laplacian matrix of a Reaction Network.

Synopsis

Description

Computes the negative of the (unweighted) Laplacian matrix of the directed graph associated with a Reaction Network.

i1 : N = reactionNetwork "A <--> B"

o1 = A-->B
     B-->A

o1 : ReactionNetwork
i2 : L = negativeLaplacian N

o2 = | -1 1  |
     | 1  -1 |

              2        2
o2 : Matrix ZZ  <--- ZZ

A bigger example:

i3 : N = oneSiteModificationA()

o3 = S_0+E-->X
     X-->S_0+E
     X-->E+S_1
     S_1+F-->Y
     Y-->S_1+F
     Y-->S_0+F

o3 : ReactionNetwork
i4 : L = negativeLaplacian N

o4 = | -1 1  0 0  0  0 |
     | 1  -2 1 0  0  0 |
     | 0  0  0 0  0  0 |
     | 0  0  0 -1 1  0 |
     | 0  0  0 1  -2 1 |
     | 0  0  0 0  0  0 |

o4 : Matrix ZZ  <--- ZZ
