This lecture contextualizes reaction-diffusion systems (RD) in a wider framework of complexity. It is shown how the concept of complexity can be founded as a precisely defined and quantifiable framework, which additionally overcomes the聽 usual reductionist definitions. Instead, an Aristotelian position is taken by proposing five necessary and sufficient conditions (“elements”) for complexity. It turns out that the concept of “complexity” is in a theory-model... Read More

We should explore the sample reaction-diffusion simulations and modify them to create a video and images that explore how the patterns change when you vary parts of the process through space and time.We used聽2-d Arrays to vary the Diffusion Rate, Parameters (ex. f and K in Gray-Scott), or Diffusion Direction (anisotropic example) and tried out different initial conditions and reactions(ex. Gray-Scott vs. Gierer Meinhardt). STUDENT WORKS Jesper Th酶ger Christensen Learning to... Read More
