Abstract

This paper demonstrates some examples that show the ability of reaction-diffusion mechanism to code the curvature of forms of multi-cellular systems. The simulation model consists of two layers: the first generates reaction-diffusion waves and the second diffuses chemical substances. The results show that topology changes feedback information to the reaction-diffusion mechanism allowing the control of the morphogenetic process.
