L-systems are parallel grammars that provide a theoretical foundation for a class of programs used in procedural image synthesis and simulation of plant development. In particular, the formalism of L-systems guides the construction of declarative languages for specifying input to these programs. We outline key factors that have motivated the development of L-systembased languages in the past, and introduce a new language, L+C, that addresses the shortcomings of its predecessors. We also… CONTINUE READING
