L platforms are language-theoretic versions for developmental biology. They wereintroduced in 1968 by way of Aristid Lindenmayer (1925-1989) and feature proved to be one of the most lovely examples of interdisciplinary technology, the place paintings in a single sector induces fruitful rules and ends up in different components. L systemsare in line with relational and set-theoretic thoughts, that are greater for the discrete and combinatorial buildings of biology than mathematical types in keeping with calculus or data. L structures have inspired new paintings not just within the real looking simulation of constructing organisms yet additionally within the concept of automata and formal languages, formal energy sequence, special effects, and combinatorics of phrases. This e-book comprises examine papers via just about all best gurus and through a number of the so much promising younger researchers within the box. The 28 contributions are prepared in sections on uncomplicated L structures, special effects, graph grammars and map L structures, organic facets and versions, and adaptations and generalizations of L structures. The introductory paper by means of Lindenmayer and J}rgensen used to be written for a large viewers and is out there to the non-specialist reader. the quantity records the state-of-the-art within the thought of L platforms and their purposes. it is going to curiosity researchers and complex scholars in theoretical computing device technology and developmental biology in addition to pros in special effects.
