Reaction-Diffusion texture synthesis is a procedural method based on the chemical process known as reaction-diffusion.
chemical mechanism for pattern formation.
first introduced by Alan Turing in 1952.
possible mechanism by which cells of an embryo arrange themselves into patterns.
two or more chemicals diffuse through an embryo and react with each other until the chemical concentrations reach some stable state.
cells of different types may then develop in different positions based on these chemical concentrations, resulting in patterns.
