I will have some."

In science:

Here, starting with two reactions (ASPT: asp-L → fum + nh4; CITL: cit → oaa + ac), we perform an edge exchange associated to metabolites fum and ac that generates two new hypothetical reactions (ASPT*: asp-L → ac + nh4; CITL*: cit → oaa + fum) that violate balance of mass and atomic elements.
Randomizing genome-scale metabolic networks
Note that ac has 2 carbon atoms and fum has 4 carbon atoms.

Ob jective. – The map above generalizes the FermiUlam model (FUM) : here we have finite heights of piston and barrier, and periodic boundary conditions.
Non-adiabatic pumping in an oscillating-piston model
Furthermore, while the FUM has been conceived to study energy absorption due to deterministic diffusion in momentum, here our interest is in the directed transport along the spatial coordinate.
