A very simple random walk simulator that can compute the mean x and y movements in addition to the Euclidean distance. |

Ilya is a small program for Windows which simulates a reaction-diffusion model based on the Brusselator reaction scheme. Ilya simulates a 2-dimensional rectangular plane with opposite edges connected so that the plane actually forms a torus. The plane is divided up into many small area elements (one area element per screen pixel). The simulation involves computing the rates of change of two chemical species labeled X and Y as a result of both chemical transformations (Brusselator scheme) and diffusion of X and Y to and from adjacent area elements.

The following images were taken from the another simulation over a period of about 10 minutes and show the sorts of patterns and structures that can self-organise. On a Pentium 133 MHz computer the evolution can be easily tracked in real-time.
