Hypergraph with bi-molecular reactions only. Splitting the single influx s' to node Q' such that the influxes to the internal nodes Q i are s i : the influx to node Q is chosen to have the quantity s = i = 1 3 m s i × 2 r ( i - 1 ) with r = max{log s i } + 1, i.e., s' is determined by the concatenation of binary representation of the values s i ; force-flow edges are depicted as dashed lines labeled with the enforced quantity, merge- (resp. expansion-) edges are depicted as red lines with open arrowheads labeled the quantification of merging (resp. expansion); the constant c for the expansion towards node O is chosen such that the outflux in node O dominates the outflux of the original lattice CRN.
