Abstract

The development of plant meristems is simulated by 3D-cellworks. They are topological systems based on a sub-alphabet of labels designating cells and a corresponding set of convex polyhedra with face and node labels, a set of cell productions, a table of cell contacts, and an initial cellwork of one or several cells. A cellwork derivation is realized, conformable to cell productions and the table, by a new packing of cells with node and wall fusion. An algorithm defines, for a given polyhedral cellular conformation, all possible ways of auto-reproductive cell divisions. The generation age of walls is used for the construction of such cellworks.
