Summary: ERNEST Reaction Network Equilibria Study Toolbox is a
MATLAB package which, by checking various different criteria on the
structure of a chemical reaction network, can exclude the multistatio-
narity of the corresponding reaction system. The results obtained are
independent of the rate constants of the reactions, and can be used
for model discrimination.
Availability and Implementation: The software, implemented in
MATLAB, is available under the GNU GPL free software license
from http://people.sissa.it/altafini/papers/SoAl09/ . It requires the
MATLAB Optimization Toolbox.
