BRANCHES   Nature's patterns: a tapestry in three parts

(second hand copy in
'as new' condition)


By Philip Ball

Published by the Oxford University Press. 2009.

 
Why is every snowflake composed of six points? And why do the patterns formed by some minerals look so remarkably like the branching growth of plants?

  

The same patterns of branching and interconnection are found throughout nature, in trees, rivers and crystals. Branching patterns, networks, and fractals form some of the most exquisite and beautiful patterns in the natural world.

Philip Ball explains how simple mathematical and physical rules can spontaneously give rise to large-scale and complex branching structures, and that these patterns are not confined to the natural world.

  

Branches is the final part of a trilogy of books exploring the science of how patterns arise in nature.
