These phenomena, resulting from complex cellular interactions, cannot be deduced solely from experimental analysis, but can be more easily examined using mathematical models, in particular, cellular automaton models.While there are various books treating cellular automaton modeling, this interdisciplinary work is the first one covering biological applications. The book is divided into three parts: Part I deals with general principles, theories, and models of pattern formation- Part II examines cellular automaton modeling- and Part III explains various applications. The models and analytic techniques described may be extended to other exciting applications in biology, medicine, and immunology.
