A new paper on autocatalytic sets was just published in the journal BioSystems. In this paper, collaborators Wim Hordijk and Mike Steel review the work on autocatalytic sets they have done over the past decade or so. The paper is written as a general overview and introduction, without the technical details. References throughout the paper point to the more technical articles where the original work was published.
