Abstract

Lindenmayer systems — or L-systems for short — find an increasing number of applications in computer graphics. Two principal areas include generation of fractals and realistic modelling of plants. More exotic applications, ranging from the reproduction of a traditional East Indian art form to graphically motivated algorithms for music composition, are also known. These notes survey various graphical applications of L-systems. A listing of a program which allows for the replication of most illustrations and for further experimentation with L-systems is included.
