Biological Self Reorganization

Self reorganization is a common phenomenon in the sciences, especially in chemistry and biology. In this chapter we will turn attention to a particular type of self reorganization called biological cell sorting. Motivation is derived from biological experiments in which separated tissues self reorganized (Antonelli, Rogers and Willard (1973), Greenspan (1981(b)), Matela and Fletterick (1980), Rogers and Goel (1978), Steinberg (1963)).
