Abstract: Physicochemical models of selection processes on biomacromolecules — replicators are investigated by making use of simple qualitative theory of differential equations. It is assumed that each replicator is self-reproduced (replicated) with a participation of a substrate (energy-rich molecules). The qualitative features of the studied system are very sensitive to the form of rate functions. It is demonstrated that genuine Darwinian selection is sim­ulated by the model only if the rate functions are determined by the mass-action law. A comparison with the original Eigen theory is presented.
