On the spectrum of prebiotic chemical systems

Origins of Life and Evolution of the Biosphere : the Journal of the International Society for the Study of the Origin of Life

Sep 9, 2008

Rodrick Wallace, Robert G Wallace

Abstract

We reexamine Eigen's paradox using the asymptotic limit theorems of information theory. Applying the homology between information source uncertainty and free energy density, under rate distortion constraints, the error catastrophe emerges as the lowest energy state for simple prebiotic ...read more
