Can Math Explain How Animals Get Their Patterns?

This video looks at Alan Turing’s Reaction-Diffusion Model, which mathematically defines how patterns might be formed in Nature.

Turing, the father of computers, created a set of formulas that describe how these patterns could be created. Biologists are now looking to see if they can find evidence of Turing’s Reaction-Diffusion Model in the real life.
