The algorithmic beauty of sea shells by Hans Meinhardt( Book )

57 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and German and held by 526 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 sea shells by Hans Meinhardt( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 229 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. Hans Meinhardt has analyzed the dynamical processes that form these patterns and retraced them faithfully in computer simulations. His book is exciting not only for the astonishing scientific knowledge it reveals but also for its fascinating pictures. Many of the simulations are supplied on the accompanying CD-ROM in HTML format. Thus, the highly dynamic behavior of the interactions on which shell patterning is based can be inspected like conventional websites with any browser, also on a Macintosh or Linux system. The animations are given as separate files that also can be integrated, e.g., into a PowerPoint presentation if desired. Also included are animated simulations of models that describe more general problems in the development of higher organisms, e.g., formation of organizing regions, pattern formation in hydra, gene activation, formation of net-like structures, and chemotactic orientation
Wie Schnecken sich in Schale werfen : Muster tropischer Meeresschnecken als dynamische Systeme by Hans Meinhardt( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in German and held by 56 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
