Abstract

We explore the effects that different reactor types have on Spiky-RBN AChem systems, looking at mass conserving and flow reactors. To assist in analysing the behaviour we introduce an activity measure based on possible system state changes as a result of changes in particle properties. This leads to a discussion on approaches to engineering complex systems towards specific goals.
