In many biological applications, it is useful to model chemical reactions at the level of individual molecules whilst not running costly Brownian dynamics models. Modelling chemical reactions as interactions at a distance can lead to errors if multiple species and time scales are important to the kinetics (for example, catalytic reactions). Multiple time scale analysis of equivalent mean-field kinetics can lead to high order reactions which are not just governed by the law of mass-action but also nonlinear kinetics such as Michaelis-Menten kinetics. In this talk we will discuss some particle-based methods which recapitulate these high order kinetics.
