We comment on Alan Turing's celebrated paper "The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis" published in 1952 in the "Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London". It is a typical example of a pioneering and inspired work in the domain of mathematical modelling. 
On the Physical Basis of Self-Organization
Experiments performed with the aim to explain pattern formation in plasma devices offer, as I will show in this survey, a new insight into the mechanism by which locally matter transits spontaneously
Programming the Emergence in Morphogenetically Architected Complex Systems
This work argues that among all the self-organized systems studied in the field of Artificial Life, the specificity of MACS essentially lies in the close relation between their emergent properties and functional properties and sees it as good candidates to help design artificial self-architected systems but also harness and redesign living ones.
Landmarks for Neurogeometry
We present a historical survey of the way Neurogeometry links the modelling of the functional architectures of primary visual areas with sub-Riemannian geometry.

Experimental evidence of a sustained standing Turing-type nonequilibrium chemical pattern.
The experimental observation of a sustained standing nonequilibrium chemical pattern in a single-phase open reactor is interpreted as the first unambiguous experimental evidence of a Turing structure.

This work uses metamorphic modalities to show that rasterization and checksums can interfere to overcome this challenge of unified certifiable communication.
Turing's Mathematical Theory of Morphogenesis
One of the fascinating aspects of the natural world is the diversity of shapes that make up the animal and plant kingdoms: the intricate patterns on a sunflower, the dramatic antlers on a stag,
Turing's theory of morphogenesis of 1952 and the subsequent discovery of the crucial role of local self-enhancement and long-range inhibition
Three-component systems, as discussed in Turing's paper, are shown to play a major role in the generation of highly dynamic patterns that never reach a stable state.
Models of biological pattern formation
The aim of the seminar is to demonstrate that it is possible to formulate models in a mathematical precise way that describe essential steps in spite of the appearing complexity of this process.
Experimental observation of self-replicating spots in a reaction–diffusion system
IN his classic 1952 paper, Turing1 suggested a possible connection between patterns in biological systems and patterns that could form spontaneously in chemical reaction–diffusion systems. Turing's
Transition from a uniform state to hexagonal and striped Turing patterns
CHEMICAL travelling waves have been studied experimentally for more than two decades1–5, but the stationary patterns predicted by Turing6 in 1952 were observed only recently7–9, as patterns localized
Complex Patterns in a Simple System
Numerical simulations of a simple reaction-diffusion model reveal a surprising variety of irregular spatiotemporal patterns, some of which resemble the steady irregular patterns recently observed in thin gel reactor experiments.
