Phyllotaxis, the search for the most homogeneous and dense organizations of small disks inside a large circular domain, was first developed to analyze arrangements of leaves or florets in plants. Then it has become an object of study not only in botany, but also in mathematics, computer simulations and physics. Although the mathematical solution is now well… CONTINUE READING
