Non equilibrium thermodynamics

Chapter on non equilibrium thermodynamics. The chapter discusses both phenomenological and mechanistic non equilibrium thermodynamics. The phenomenological part has as asset compared to earlier treatments that it also considers the phenomenological stoichiometry as a parameter that may be adjusted by systems to attain optimal performance. In the mechanistic part, this feature of variable stoichiometry and 'slips' as well as redistribution of fluxes over parallel branches of metabolism is discussed.
