The algorithmic beauty of sea shells by Hans Meinhardt ( Book )
40 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The patterns on the shells of tropical sea snails are not only compellingly beautiful but also tell a tale of biological development. The decorative patterns are records of their own genesis, which follows laws like those of dune formation or the spread of a flu epidemic. This book reveals the scientific knowledge
The algorithmic beauty of plants by Przemyslaw Prusinkiewicz ( Book )
23 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first comprehensive volume on the computer simulation of plant development. It contains a full account of the algorithms used to model plant shapes and developmental processes, Lindenmayer systems in particular. With nearly 50 color plates, the spectacular results of the modelling are vividly illustrated. "This marvelous book will occupy an important place in the scientific literature." #Professor Heinz-Otto Peitgen# "The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants will perform a valuable service by popularizing this enlightening and bewitching form of mathematics." #Steven Levy# " ... the garden here is full of delights and an excellent introduction to L-systems ..." #Alvy Ray Smith, IEEE Computer Graphics and its Applications#
Pattern formation in biology, vision and dynamics by Alessandra Carbone ( )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Half a billion years of evolution have turned the eye into an unbelievable pattern detector. Everything we perceive comes in delightful multicolored forms. Now, in the age of science, we want to comprehend what and why we see. Two dozen outstanding biologists, chemists, physicists, psychologists, computer scientists and mathematicians met at the Institut d'Hautes Etudes Scientifiques in Bures-sur-Yvette, France. They expounded their views on the physical, biological and physiological mechanisms creating the tapestry of patterns we see in molecules, plants, insects, seashells, and even the human

Wie Schnecken sich in Schale werfen : Muster tropischer Meeresschnecken als dynamische Systeme by Hans Meinhardt ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Klappentext: Dieser Band bietet einen Einblick in das faszinierende Forschungsgebiet der Strukturbildung von Organismen während ihrer Entwicklung. Anhand der Muster auf den Schalen tropischer Meeresschnecken zeigt Hans Meinhardt Gesetzmäßigkeiten auf, die Strukturbildung ermöglichen. Die dekorativen Muster dieser Gehäuse stellen Protokolle ihrer eigenen Entstehung dar: Sie geben den zeitlichen Ablauf der dynamischen Prozesse wieder, die längs der Wachstumskante der Schalen abgelaufen sind. Das erlaubt das Dechiffrieren dieser Muster. In einem abschließenden Kapitel wird gezeigt, daß die dafür entwickelten Modelle auch andere Musterbildungsprozesse in der Biologie gut beschreiben, z.B. die Bildung der embryonalen Achsen eines Embryos oder die Bildung von Adern und Blattanlaagen. Enge Parallelen ergeben sich zu Prozessen wie der Weiterleitung von Nervenimpulsen oder der Blutgerinnung. Dabei wird deutlich, daß hier universelle Mechanismen am Werk sind, die auch bei der Entwicklung von Sternen, Dünen, Erosionsformen oder der Bildung von Grippewelleln wiederzufinden sind. Mit der beigefügten Diskette kann der Leser die Simulationen am PC selbst nachvollziehen und variieren

Fractal modelling : growth and form in biology by Jaap A Kaandorp ( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
New developments in computer science, biology, mathematics and physics offer possibilities to obtain deeper understanding of growth and forms of organisms. It is now possible to carry out simulation experiments in which the growth process can be simulated in virtual computer objects. In this book, methods from fractal geometry are applied to model growth forms. As a case study, a type of growth process is used which can be found among various taxonomic classes of organisms such as sponges and corals. The growth of these organisms is simulated with 2D and 3D geometrical objects. The models presented in the book provide a rendering method for natural objects which is based on the actual growth process. The models can be used, for example, to understand the amazing variety of forms to be found in a coral reef. Models which mimic the growth of forms and the environmental influence on the growth process are also useful for ecologists. A combination of simulation models and the actual growth forms can be used to detect the effects of slow changes in the environment
