About this book

Pattern Formation in Morphogenesis is a rich source of interesting and challenging mathematical problems. The volume aims at showing how a combination of new discoveries in developmental biology and associated modelling and computational techniques has stimulated or may stimulate relevant advances in the field. Finally it aims at facilitating the process of unfolding a mutual recognition between Biologists and Mathematicians of their complementary skills, to the point where the resulting synergy generates new and novel discoveries. It offers an interdisciplinary interaction space between biologists from embryology, genetics and molecular biology who present their own work in the perspective of the advancement of their specific fields, and mathematicians who propose solutions based on the knowledge grasped from biologists.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The current book may be a good start to explore the subject. There are some 20 relatively short papers presenting different possible angles, approaches, and models for many different aspects of morphogenetic phenomena. The seeds for these papers were planted during a workshop on the subject at the IHES in Bures-sur-Yvette (France) in 2010. The idea of this workshop was precisely to create an environment in which biologists and mathematicians could communicate on this particular subject.” (A. Bultheel, The European Mathematical Society, December, 2012)
