In science:

The propagator in the chemical space P (ℓ, t) is obtained by summing P (i, t) over all cluster sites i on the chemical shell situated at distance ℓ from the origin.
II. Territory covered by N random walkers on stochastic fractals. The percolation aggregate
We have also evaluated numerically the fractal volume in terms of the chemical distance V (ℓ), i.e., the number of lattice sites inside a circumference (in chemical space) of radius ℓ.
II. Territory covered by N random walkers on stochastic fractals. The percolation aggregate
If the system is only thermally and mechanically, i.e., kinetical ly, but not chemically equilibrated, these equations have to be supplemented by rate equations which determine the chemical composition of the system .
Remarks on the extraction of freeze-out parameters
Since chemical equilibrium requires frequent inelastic collisions, while kinetic equilibrium only requires frequent elastic collisions, chemical freeze-out occurs earlier, i.e., at larger temperatures, than kinetic freeze-out.
Remarks on the extraction of freeze-out parameters
It was pointed out in a previous note that the ATC AGL tiles have been processed and conditionned with chemically active products like solvants and wave length shifter, and that a chemical contamination was more likely than an (unoticed so far) ageing phenomenon of Silica.
Experimental study of a proximity focusing Cherenkov counter prototype for the AMS experiment
It should be first pointed out that some of those studies have solved the chemical rate equations, allowing for out-of-chemical-equilibrium abundances of the relevant coolants (e.g., Murray & Lin 1989, 1990; David et al. 1988; Kang et al. 1990; Koyama & Inutsuka 2000).
The nonlinear development of the thermal instability in the atomic ISM and its interaction with random fluctuations
To date, definitive detections of fields in stars with masses ∼> 1.5 M⊙ have, for the most part, been made for ob jects having anomalous chemical abundances (e.g., the chemically peculiar A and B stars; Landstreet 1992; Donati 1998).
Magnetic Fields in Massive Stars. II. The Buoyant Rise of Magnetic Flux Tubes Through the Radiative Interior
Our model thus describes conditions within a young, chemically homogeneous, main sequence star; it does not apply at later evolutionary stages when a flux tube that originates in the vicinity of the core-envelope interface may contain chemically processed material.
Magnetic Fields in Massive Stars. II. The Buoyant Rise of Magnetic Flux Tubes Through the Radiative Interior
This weak reductionistic assumption is part of the ob jectivity principle. A chemical reaction is too difficult to be explained from a purely quantum mechanical perspective at the present time, but nevertheless no violation of quantum mechanics is expected to take place during a chemical reaction.

The further considerations are grounded on the explicit relation between the notion of chemical potential and stability of the system. Indeed, the chemical potential must be measure how strong the stability of the system is “affected” by association or dissociation of an entity.
Fluctuations and Long-Term Stability: from Coherence to Chaos
Yet, note that the lost of the chemical identity is temporary: it gets until the entity enters the “rigid” part of the Hamiltonian or scattered to the gas phase where their chemical identity is restored. An important sequel of the level repulsion is that the number of states in the low-energy limit is always finite.
