What are the family among the form of a procedure of towns and that of fish college? Which occasions may still ensue in a telephone so that it participates to 1 of the finger of our arms? tips on how to interpret the form of a sand dune? This collective booklet written for the non-specialist addresses those questions and extra often, the basic factor of the emergence of kinds and styles in actual and residing platforms. it's a unmarried booklet collecting the various elements of morphogenesis and ways constructed in numerous disciplines on form and trend formation. hoping on the seminal works of D’Arcy Thompson, Alan Turing and René Thom, it confronts significant examples like plant development and form, intra-cellular association, evolution of residing types or motifs generated via crystals. A booklet necessary to comprehend common ideas at paintings within the shapes and styles surrounding us but in addition to prevent spurious analogies.
