Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


It is known today there are many networks existing in living systems like signal transduction, transcriptional regulation, immanence response and like so on. These networks, like all the other networks, are based on relationships between elements. In this contribution, we propose a network model of living systems. It possesses information of connections among nodes, which stand for critical elements in a network. We formulate it as a simple model of probability theory and find interesting phenomena in it.
