Lindenmayer Systems

A Lindenmayer System consists of

  • an initial string called axiom
  • a set of rewriting rules

This is an experimental page, where the Lindenmayer Systems can be changed online. For each system a maximum level is defined. If this value is increased, the complexity of the drawing rises and running time increases, too.

Most of the examples are from the book by Przemyslaw Prusinkiewicz and James Hanan: Lindenmayer Systems, Fractals, and Plants , see the References.
