Generalized Stability of Chemical Dynamic Systems

The goal of the project on the GST of chemical systems is to understand the sensitivity of both the equilibrium and the time dependent states produced by interaction among advection, diffusion and chemical reactions. The chemical reaction/advection/diffusion system is non-normal but in contrast to fluid dynamical systems where the appropriate norm is quadratic; the appropriate measure of chemical abundance is the L1 or counting norm as is used in economics.
