Since the first time I saw some of the patterns produced by Reaction Diffusion simulations I’ve been hooked on the topic. For those not familiar with the term, Reaction Diffusion is generally thought of a mathematical or chemical model where two or more components react in a non-linear fashion. These interactions can lead to stable pattern formation that often mimics those found in nature. Zebra stripes, Giraffe reticulation, and mollusk shells are just a few of the many complex non-random patterns that can be produced through these methods. Simply stated, they offer a real world solution to the mythical can of stripped paint. For more information on the topic, check out some of the links in the reference section of the site.
