Abstract:

The paper outlines a formal procedure for simulating certain aspects of the biochemistry of a viable system. The procedure is based on a mathematical model and a computer program. The plausibility of constructing detailed models of large biochemical systems is demonstrated. The object of the paper is to demonstrate that a mathematical program can simulate the functions of a selected viable system. For this purpose, a mathematical model of viable blood known as the SF Blood model was chosen. The SF Blood model is a reasonable representation of the respiratory function of the adult-restingmale blood.
