Growth and Form

Aims & Scope

Growth and Form is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal publishing articles from various fields that expose the variability or correspondence in natural shapes and phenomena, and/or describe mathematical and geometrical strategies to understand natural shapes, their variability and their development. We are surrounded by form and phenomena. The smallest organisms and the biggest galaxies manifest themselves through their respective forms, along with all kinetic and dynamic aspects of their development and evolution. Indeed forms are not static, but they change and metamorphose continuously. This journal is devoted to the geometric analysis of growth and form, static and dynamic, as visible in such areas as biology, chemistry and physics. We welcome papers up to 20 pages in length, giving fresh insights into the origin and development of form, which are relevant for their respective fields and which are broad enough to inspire a wide range of scientists. Both theoretical papers and papers of a practical or educational nature will be considered.
