Abstract

In this paper, we describe an algorithm which can be used to generate the collection of networks, in order of increasing size, that are compatible with a list of chemical reactions and that satisfy a constraint. Our algorithm has been encoded and the software, called Netscan, can be freely downloaded from ftp://ftp.stat.ubc.ca/pub/riffraff/Netscanfiles, along with a manual, for general scientific use. Our algorithm may require pre-processing to ensure that the quantities it acts on are physically relevant and because it outputs sets of reactions, which we call canonical networks, that must be elaborated into full networks.
