Lifshitz-Petrich Equation

Quasicrystalline Pattern

The equation is a modified version of the Swift-Hohenberg model constructed to develop quasicrystalline patterns. You can find out more about quasicrystals on the web site of Ron Lifshitz, who developed this model while he was a postdoc at Caltech.

You can run the same equation in a system size twice as large (128 x 128) here.
