Product Overview

Where does the particular form or configuration of a pattern come from, and how is it propagated from pattern to pattern? Templets and the Explanation of Complex Patterns provides a natural language for analysing such questions. Using it, the organisational forces that underlie the fabrication of any pattern can be divided into two classes. First, there are the universal laws of pattern assembly, the configurational rules and constraints inherent within the fabric of the pattern elements themselves. Second, there are the templets - external, situational constraints imposed on the pattern elements. From the perspective of templeting, simple patterns can be directly contrasted with complex patterns: the former are completely determined by their universal laws, whereas the latter also require extensive templets. Natural patterns range along the entire spectrum from simple to complex, and the most complex of these include both random patterns and many biological patterns. *Author: Katz, Michael J. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 140 *Publication Date: 2009/01/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.50 x 5.50 x 0.33 inches
