Aggregation dynamics using phase wave signals and branching patterns

Hidetsugu Sakaguchi, Takuma Kusagaki

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The aggregation dynamics of slime mold is studied using coupled equations of phase φ and cell concentration n. Phase waves work as tactic signals for aggregation. Branching structures appear during the aggregation. A stationary branching pattern appears like a river network, if cells are uniformly supplied into the system.
