The Nature of Code: Simulating Natural Systems with Processing
by Daniel Shiffman
Publisher: The Nature of Code 2012
Number of pages: 520
This book focuses on a range of programming strategies and techniques behind computer simulations of natural systems, from elementary concepts in mathematics and physics to more advanced algorithms that enable sophisticated visual results. Readers will progress from building a basic physics engine to creating intelligent moving objects and complex systems, setting the foundation for further experiments in generative design.
