Originally the L-systems were devised to provide a formal description of the development of such simple multicellular organisms, and to illustrate the neighbourhood relationships between plant cells. Later on, this system was extended to describe higher plants and complex branching structures. Plant models and natural-looking organic forms are easy to define, as by increasing the recursion level the form slowly ‘grows’ and becomes more complex. The rules of the L-system grammar are applied iteratively starting from the initial state. As many rules as possible are applied simultaneously, per iteration. If the production rules were to be applied only one at a time, one would quite simply generate a language, rather than an L-system. Thus, L-systems are strict subsets of languages.

Using L-systems for generating graphical images requires that the symbols in the model refer to elements of a drawing on the computer screen. It interprets each constant in an L-system model as a turtle command. Lindenmayer’s original L-system for modelling the growth of algae. The ratio of A to B likewise converges to the golden mean. Each character of the input string is checked against the rule list to determine which character or string to replace it with in the output string.

We can see that this string quickly grows in size and complexity. When the turtle interpretation encounters a ”. If multiple values have been “pushed,” then a “pop” restores the most recently saved values. Cantor set in seven iterations.

X and Y do not correspond to any drawing action and are only used to control the evolution of the curve. X does not correspond to any drawing action and is used to control the evolution of the curve. The square bracket “” is executed. A number of elaborations on this basic L-system technique have been developed which can be used in conjunction with each other. The grammar model we have discussed thus far has been deterministic—that is, given any symbol in the grammar’s alphabet, there has been exactly one production rule, which is always chosen, and always performs the same conversion. A context sensitive production rule looks not only at the symbol it is modifying, but the symbols on the string appearing before and after it. As with stochastic productions, there are multiple productions to handle symbols in different contexts.
