Abstract

Metabolic systems need to show high performance under typical environmental conditions and, at the same time, maintain certain functions under a broad range of perturbations and varying conditions. It is precisely this robustness with respect to large environmental changes that makes metabolic networks a potentially very interesting role model for technical production and distribution systems. Here we develop a formalism to compare these systems and show that optimization strategies from one domain can also be successfully applied to the other domains.
