  1. The structure of invariant regions and globally attracting regions is fundamental to understanding the dynamical properties of reaction network models. We describe an explicit construction of the minimal invariant regions and minimal globally attracting regions for dynamical systems consisting of two reversible reactions, where the rate constants are allowed to vary in time within a bounded interval.

    When the temperature of a trapped Bose gas is below the Bose-Einstein transition temperature and above absolute zero, the gas is composed of two distinct components: the Bose-Einstein condensate and the cloud of thermal excitations. The dynamics of the excitations can be described by quantum Boltzmann models. We establish a connection between quantum Boltzmann models and chemical reaction networks. We prove that the discrete differential equations for these quantum Boltzmann models converge to an equilibrium point. Moreover, this point is unique for all initial conditions that satisfy the same conservation laws. In the proof, we then employ a toric dynamical system approach, similar to the one used to prove the global attractor conjecture, to study the convergence to equilibrium of quantum kinetic equations.
