Title: Numerical Studies of Double-Layer Circularization and Gastrulation
Author: Greenspan, Donald
Abstract: In this paper, certain types of biological cell rearrangements are modeled from a computer point of view. All forces are of a local nature and are patterned on classical atomic and molecular interactions. It is first shown how to induce a double-layered flat tissue to fold into a double-layered circular tissue. Then, it is shown how to induce a section of the circular tissue to pull inward, or gastrulate.
