Title: A New Mathematical Approach to Biological Cell Rearrangement with Applications to the Inversion of Volvox
Author: Greenspan, Donald
Abstract: This paper develops a new method for modeling cell rearrangement in both two and three dimensions. The method uses classical molecular type forces and is computer oriented, recursively explicit, and economical. As yet, the approach is simplistic in that switching processes are not related deterministically to chemical, neurological, or genetic precursors. Illustrative computer examples of the inversion of volvox are described and discussed.
