Unformatted text preview: second. 1. What is the propensity for the reaction? 2. What if you have 20 molecules of C? Answer the question 4.1 above if the reaction is B+B -> C 5. Why do you use random numbers to when deciding which reaction will fire in the Gillespie algorithm (direct, first and next reaction methods)? Why not just choose the reaction with the highest propensity ? 6. What was Gibson's insight into speeding up the Gillespie algorithm? Does this remind you of methods we've used before in the course to speed up our algorithms ?...
