Physics Based on Blurring
CS 480 Lecture,
Tons of physical phenomena can be represented as a blurring process:
However, in addition to blurring most cool physics also involves some
additional reaction. For example, you can get cool crystalline
patterns by just making ice formation release heat, and letting the
heat diffuse out.
- Heat diffuses through uniform materials, with a small sharp hot region blurring out into a large fuzzy warm zone.
- Light diffuses through translucent materials like wax or milk.
- Chemical signals diffuse through growing tissue, directing the growth of that same tissue.
