Pattern formation in Turing systems with mixed boundary conditions

Maini, P. K. and Dillon, R. and Othmer, H. G. (1993) Pattern formation in Turing systems with mixed boundary conditions. In: 2nd International Conference on Biomathematics, 5-6-7 October 1992, San Marino, Italy.



A central issue in developmental biology is the formation of pattern and form in the early embryo. From the apparently homogeneous mass of dividing cells that exists in the earliest stages of development emerges the vast range of pattern and structure observed in the adult. The formation of structure is termed morphogenesis, and pattern generation models are known as morphogenetic models. The role of modelling in morphogenesis is to suggest possible scenarios as to how various physical and chemical processes conspire to produce pattern.
