Amoeba post

Introduction

Overview of post topics

  • First the stochastic Petri net and an explanation of amoebas.

  • Then the rate equation and its solution.

  • Then the construction of a stable Poisson state - you can say there’s a general theory of this stuff, and point to Anderson’s paper, but don’t bother explaining that general theory yet: you can say we’ll do this later.

Stochastic Petri nets

Protozoa: amoebas are for real
