The theoretical physics of the cell as a basis for a general physico-chemical theory of organic form


It is shown by thermodynamical considerations, that in general regardless to the particular nature of a cell, there must be two kinds of forces between cells: a force of repulsion, due to metabolism, and a force of attraction, due to irritability. It is shown, that the various geometrical forms, which cellular aggregates may assume under the influence of… (More)
