Growth and Form

Aims & Scope

Growth and Form (GAF) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal publishing articles from various fields that expose the variability or correspondence in natural shapes and/or describe mathematical and geometrical strategies to understand natural shapes, their variability and their development. We are surrounded by form. The smallest organisms and the biggest galaxies manifest themselves through their respective forms. However, forms are not static, but change and metamorphose continuously. This journal is devoted to the geometric analysis of growth and form, as visible in such areas as biology and physics. We welcome papers of 5-10 pages in length, giving fresh insights into the origin and development of form, which are relevant for their field 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.
