## Mathematica Notebooks

If you don't have Mathematica installed, you will need to download Mathematica Player.

**Linear Noise Approximation** - I have written an automated implementation
of the Linear Noise Approximation that uses the functionality of the Cellerator
add-on package for Mathematica.
It is available as a Mathematica
notebook (zipped).

**Effective Stability Approximation** - I have written an automated implementation
of the Effective Stability Approximation. It is available as a Mathematica
notebook. The examples and generated plots coincide with the figures from
this article.

## Reprints of Papers by N. G. van Kampen

N. G. van Kampen has written some of the finest, most direct and no-nonsense papers on modeling physical phenomena with stochastic processes. Unfortunately, several of these appear in out-of-print conference proceedings that can be difficult to get a hold of. In some cases, the task has been made simpler with the publication of van Kampen's informal collected works:* Views of a Physicist*, Paul H. E. Meijer, Ed. (World Scientific, 2000). Nonetheless, there are several wonderful articles that are not contained in that volume. Below, I have reproduced a few of my favourites in hopes that they may find a wider audience:

*Reprinted from*: Irreversibility in the Many-Body Problem: Sitges International School of Physics, May 1972. Edited by J. Biel and J. Rae. Plenum Press, New York, 1972. pp. 349-386.

*Reprinted from*: Thermodynamics & kinetics of biological processes. Edited by I. Lamprecht and A. I. Zotin. Walter de Gruyter & Co., New York, 1982. pp. 181-195.

*Reprinted from*: Chapter 5 of Fluctuation Phenomena in Solids. Edited by R. E. Burgess. Academic Press, 1965. pp. 139-177.

*Reprinted from*: Topics in Statistical Mechanics and Biophysics: A memorial to Julius L. Jackson. Edited by R. A. Piccirelli. American Institute of Physics, 1976. pp. 153-186.
