By Hans Meinhardt (auth.)

The styles at the shells of tropical sea snails will not be merely compellingly attractive but additionally inform a story of organic improvement. the ornamental styles are documents in their personal genesis, which follows legislation like these of dune formation or the unfold of a flu epidemic. Hans Meinhardt has analyzed the dynamical techniques that shape those styles and retraced them faithfully in computing device simulations. His publication is interesting not just for the striking medical wisdom it unearths but additionally for its attention-grabbing pictures.

The Algorithmic Beauty of Sea Shells

The styles at the shells of tropical sea snails will not be purely compellingly attractive but in addition inform a story of organic improvement. the ornamental styles are documents in their personal genesis, which follows legislation like these of dune formation or the unfold of a flu epidemic. Hans Meinhardt has analyzed the dynamical strategies that shape those styles and retraced them faithfully in desktop simulations.

Sample text

A possible solution of this problem is a shifting spot-like organizer that elongates the stripe-like midline. 7, and program XY, S134d) In conclusion, relatively simple molecular interactions based on local selfenhancement and long range inhibition allow the formation of stable patterns starting from originally more or less homogeneous conditions. These patterns can be used to create particular structures at particular positions during development, for instance, to establish embryonic axes or to initiate periodic structures in space.

B) Final distribution [Program XY: S211, GT1]. 10). The mechanism outlined above produces activated regions at more or less regular distances in two dimensions. 11 shows the emergence of such a pattern from random fluctuations. As previously mentioned, saturation leads to a broadening of the maxima. In two-dimensional pattern formation this has a nontrivial effect: the formation of stripes. Stripes are very common in embryonic development. These stripes should not be confused with the stripes generated by the one-dimensional processes discussed earlier.

6 The activator - depleted substrate scheme As mentioned earlier in connection with the sand dune example, the antagonistic effect can also result from the depletion of the substrate b(x) that is consumed during production of the autocatalytic activator a(x). 4. It is similar to the Brusselator reaction proposed by Prigogine and Lefever (1968) but is somewhat simpler. e. bb > ra . , Db Da . 5. For demonstration purposes, rather than random fluctuations in the source density s, a somewhat elevated activator concentration in the leftmost cell is assumed.
