Linear Chain System (Cao et al., 2004)

The Linear Chain System consists of M chain reactions with M+1 species as follows:

  S_1 --c1--> S_2
  S_2 --c2--> S_3
       ...
  S_M --cM--> S_(M+1)

Define parameters

library(GillespieSSA2)
sim_name <- "Linear Chain System"
M <- 50
params <- c(c = 1)
final_time <- 5
initial_state <- c(1000, rep(0, M)) 
names(initial_state) <- paste0("x", seq_len(M+1))

Define the reactions

reactions <- lapply(
  seq_len(M),
  function(i) {
    effect <- c(-1, 1)
    names(effect) <- paste0("x", c(i, i + 1))
    
    reaction(paste0("c * x", i), effect)
  }
)

Run simulations with the Exact method

set.seed(1)
out <- ssa(
  initial_state = initial_state,
  reactions = reactions,
  params = params,
  final_time = final_time,
  method = ssa_exact(),
  sim_name = sim_name
) 
autoplot.ssa(out)

Run simulations with the Explict tau-leap method

set.seed(1)
out <- ssa(
  initial_state = initial_state,
  reactions = reactions,
  params = params,
  final_time = final_time,
  method = ssa_etl(tau = .1),
  sim_name = sim_name
) 
autoplot.ssa(out)

Run simulations with the Binomial tau-leap method

set.seed(1)
out <- ssa(
  initial_state = initial_state,
  reactions = reactions,
  params = params,
  final_time = final_time,
  method = ssa_btl(mean_firings = 50),
  sim_name = sim_name
) 
autoplot.ssa(out)
