Diffusion in a growing domain model

Diffusion in a growing domain

Detail Description:

It is interesting to study the behavior of diffusion in a growing domain. With this model you will see the pattern develop as the leaf grows out of a initial small cluster of cells.

For a complete description of the equations involved, and their corresponding implementation in C++ code, please refer to the section entitled 'Reaction-diffusion and cell differentiation' in 'Building simulation models of developing plant organs using Virtualleaf.'

The protocols are included with the VirtualLeaf framework. Each protocol occupies a unique revision in the mercurial source code repository, and is marked with a  mnemonic tag. Use mercurial's update command to move to the appropriate revision:

> cd virtualleaf
> hg update -r 'rd and growth'


The protocols are not included in the framework build process. To build and install our 'divide over arbitrary axis' model type:

> cd src/protocols
> make





Language: source code

Source: : rd and growth
