Describing chemistry at all scales

I recently delivered a presentation on multiscale modelling and experiments in combustion research and generated some plots of the different equations and experiments we employ at different scales. See if you can work out what each equation corresponds to. 

This is a very common plot in many different fields, however often only the bottom-left to top-right diagonal space is populated, whereas in most applications the goal should be to fill the entire space in order to describe all of the physics. 

I have also made a graph of the different modelling techniques we have developed or used in the Computational Modelling (CoMo) group at the University of Cambridge to model soot formation at different scales.

Feel free to suggest any additional experiments or formulas you think I have left out.
