Using the human erythrocyte as an example, this book presents the approaches, methods, tools, and algorithms for modelling the chemical-dynamics of metabolic pathways. The authors explain the concepts underpinning the deterministic theory of chemical and enzyme kinetics in such a way that readers will be able to formulate their own models of time-dependent metabolic systems. They present a graded series of computer models of metabolic pathways leading up to that of human erythrocyte metabolism and document a consistent set of rate equations and associated kinetic parameters relevant to the human erythrocyte, making the book of particular interest to readers involved with red cell enzymology.
