Chemical Reaction Networks: Computability, Complextiy, and Randomness

In this thesis we study the computational power of chemical reaction networks (CRNs), under both the deterministic and stochastic semantics of the model. We explore the class of real numbers that are computed in real time by deterministic CRNs. We develop the elements of the theory of algorithmic randomness in continuous-time Markov chains with the aim of applying to stochastic CRNs, which are essentially special cases of CTMCs.
