Jeff-Eke IV.2015. A Gauge model-based analysis of: Reduction(s) in osmolyte infusion interval and its effects on the aggregate measure of systemic failure for a unicellular system. PeerJ PrePrints3:e1163v2https://doi.org/10.7287/peerj.preprints.1163v2
This is a companion to A Gauge model for analysis of Biological systems. Here we reconcile the gauge model with a “real” system, which in this case is a unicellular system. We address effects of infusion of free osmolytes into an intracellular space of interest, and how changes to the frequency of infusion affects the aggregate measure of systemic failure. We also describe limitations to the functionality of the system that may stem from a limited availability of resources. We end by introducing a theoretical problem related to how well the system can tolerate random and extreme changes to the frequency of osmolytes presented via infusion.
