Physical aspects of origins of life scenarios

Blokhuis, Alex. “Physical aspects of origins of life scenarios.” PhD diss., PSL Research University; ESPCI ParisTECH, 2019.

This chapter is an informal introduction to the science that concerns itself with scenarios for
the origins of life (OOL). The need for such an introduction comes from the rich heterogeneity of disciplines and perspectives in the field, too numerous to be covered here. In doing so, we provide some of the baggage to justify the work in following chapters. We hope to provide the reader with an appreciation and some context for the questions that are addressed in different branches of OOL. We also hope to provide handles in the critical interpretation of the literature and its corresponding press statements.
