Rule-based programming(van Wijngaarden, Lindenmayer)

Computer = transformation machine for structures (or for states).

There exists always a current structure, which is transformed as long as possible.

Working process: Search and application.matching: search for a rule which is applicable to the current structure,

rewriting: application of the rule in order to rewrite the current structure.

programme = a set of transformation rules.

finding a programme: specification of the rules.

programming languages: Prolog, L-system languages, Intran

Lindenmayer-Systems (L-Systems)

- named after Aristid Lindenmayer
(Dutch-Hungarian biologist, 1925-1989)

- Data structure and language inseparably connected to each
other

- Data structure is a sequence of (parameterized) symbols,
e.g.: F(1) [ + A(1) ] [ - A(1) ]

- Every L-system consists of:
- an alphabet (a set of symbols)
- a start word (axiom) (in XL: Axiom)
- a set of replacement rules (applied in parallel to the
developing string), e.g.:

A(x) ==> F(x/2) [ + A(x/2) ] [ - A(x/2) ]

Turtle commands (imperative programming style)

F0 "Forward", including construction of a cylinder,

uses the current step width for length

(the zero stands for "no explicit specification of length")

M0 forward without construction (Move command)

L(x) change the current step width (length) to x

LAdd(x) increment the current step width by x

LMul(x) multiply the current step width by x

D(x), DAdd(x), DMul(x) analogously for current

thickness

RU(45) Rotation of the turtle around "up" axis by 45°

RL(...), RH(...) analogously around "left" and "head" axis

up-, left- and head axis form an orthogonal, spatial coordinate system, which is always associated with the turtle

RV(x) Rotation "downwards" with a strength specified by x

L(100) D(3) RU(-90) F(50) RU(90) M0 RU(90) D(10) F0 F0

D(3) RU(90) F0 F0 RU(90) F(150) RU(90) F(140) RU(90)

M(30) F(30) M(30) F(30) RU(120) M0 Sphere(15)

generates

what is the result of the interpretation of the string

L(10) F0 RU(45) F0 RU(45) LMul(0.5) F0 M0 F0?

Repetition of parts of the command string with the keyword "for"

e.g. for ((1:3)) ( A B C )

yields A B C A B C A B C

what is the result of the interpretation of

L(10) for ((1:6))

( F0 RU(90) LMul(0.8) ) ?

Branching: realization with stack commands

[ put current turtle state on stack ("push")

] take current state from stack ("pop") and let this state be the current turtle state (this means: end of the branch, continue with main stem)

Example of interpreted L-system:

rules

A ==> F0 [ RU(45) B ] A ;

B ==> F0 B ;

start word (axiom) L(10)A

(A and B are normally not interpreted geometrically.)

what a structure is the result of the following L-system

A ==> [ LMul(0.25) RU(-45) F0 ] F0 B;

B ==> [ LMul(0.25) RU(45) F0 ] F0 A;

with start wordL(10)A ?

what a structure is the result of the following L-system

A ==> [ LMul(0.25) RU(-45) F0 ] F0 B;

B ==> [ LMul(0.25) RU(45) F0 ] F0 A;

with start wordL(10)A ?

equivalent rule:

A ==> [ LMul(0.25) RU(-45) F0 ] F0 RH(180) A;

module R extends RU(-45); /* inheritance */

module A extends F(10);

Axiom ==> L(100) R X R A R X;

X ==> X F0 X R A R X F0 X;

Branching, alternating phyllotaxy and shortening of branches:

Axiom ==> L(10) F0 A ;

A ==> LMul(0.5) [ RU(90) F0 ] F0 RH(180) A ;

which structure is given by branches:

Axiom ==> F(10) A ;

A ==> [ RU(-60) F(6) RH(180) A Sphere(3) ]

[ RU(40) F(10) RH(180) A Sphere(3) ];

Sphere ==> Z; ?

(F(n) yields line of the given length n,

Sphere(n)a sphere with radius n)

Stochastic L-systems branches:

using pseudo-random numbers

example:

deterministic stochastic

float c = 0.7;

Axiom ==>

L(100) D(5) A;

A ==> F0 LMul(c) DMul(c)

[ RU(50) A ] [ RU(-10) A ];

float c = 0.7;

Axiom ==>

L(100) D(5) A;

A ==> F0 LMul(c) DMul(c)

if (probability(0.5))

( [ RU(50) A ] [ RU(-10) A ] )

else

( [ RU(-50) A ] [ RU(10) A ] );

Generating a random distribution on a plane: branches:

Axiom ==> D(0.5) for ((1:300))

( [ Translate(random(0, 100), random(0, 100), 0)

F(random(5, 30)) ] );

view from above oblique view

Which structure is generated by the following L-system? branches:

Axiom==> [ RU(90) M(1) RU(90) A(1) ] A(1);

A(n) ==> F(n) RU(90) A(n+1);

variant: replace "RU(90)" in the second rule by "RU(92)"

context sensitivity branches:

Query for a context which must be present in order for a rule to be applicable

Specification of the context in (* .... *)

example:

module A(int age);

module B(super.length, super.color) extends F(length, 3, color);

Axiom ==> A(0);

A(t), (t < 5) ==> B(10, 2) A(t+1);

A(t), (t == 5) ==> B(10, 4);

B(s, 2) (* B(r, 4) *) ==> B(s, 4);

B(s, 4) ==> B(s, 3) [ RH(random(0, 360)) RU(30) F(30, 1, 14) ];

Transition to graph grammars: branches:

Rewriting of graphs instead of strings

(strings remain a special case)

Relational growth grammars (RGG): parallel graph grammars with a special graph model

(see Ole's dissertation for mathematical foundations)

"relational": different edge types of the graph can stand for different relations

critical point here: branches:

the connection of the inserted right-hand side with the rest of the graph

("embedding")

XL offers 3 standard types of rules with different solutions for embedding:

L ==> R L-system rules: embedding made

compatible with L-systems

L ==>> R SPO rules (single pushout rules, from

algebraic graph grammar theory):

after insertion, "dangling edges" are removed

L ::> C execution rules: no change of the graph

topology at all, only parameters are changed

(C: command sequence, imperative)

Spreading rule for a branches:

signal in the network:

XL representation:

(* Cell(1) *) c:Cell(0) ::> c[state] := 1;

Extended L-Systems (XL)

Example for execution rules

given: a graph with cycles

XL code: branches:

static Cell* context(Cell c1)

{

yield (* c2:Cell, ((c2 != c1) && (c2.distanceLinf(c1) < 1.1)) *);

}

public void transition()

[

x:Cell(1), (!(sum(context(x)[state]) in (2 : 3))) ::> x[state] := 0;

x:Cell(0), (sum(context(x)[state]) == 3) ::> x[state] := 1;

]

Extended L-Systems (XL)

The Game of Life

- global sensitivity, branches:graph queries
- Example: growth takes place only when there is enough distance to the next object in space
- module A(int s);
- Axiom ==> F(100) [ RU(-30) A(70) ] RU(30) A(100);
- a:A(s) ==> if ( forall(distance(a, (* F *)) > 60) )
- ( RH(180) F(s) [ RU(-30) A(70) ] RU(30) A(100) )
- without the condition with the condition

Interpretive rules branches:

Insertion of an extra rule application immediately before graphical interpretation takes place (without effect on the next generation)

application of interpretive rules

Turtle interpretation

Example:

public void run()

{[

Axiom ==> A;

A ==> Scale(0.3333) for (i:(-1:1))

for (j:(-1:1))

if ((i+1)*(j+1) != 1)

( [ Translate(i, j, 0) A ] );

]

applyInterpretation();

}

public void interpret()

[

A ==> Box;

]

public void run() branches:

{[

Axiom ==> A;

A ==> Scale(0.3333) for (i:(-1:1))

for (j:(-1:1))

if ((i+1)*(j+1) != 1)

( [ Translate(i, j, 0) A ] );

]

applyInterpretation();

}

public void interpret()

[

A ==> Box;

]

(a)

(b)

(c)

A ==> Box(0.1, 0.5, 0.1)

Translate(0.1, 0.25, 0) Sphere(0.2);

A ==> Sphere(0.5);

what will be generated by this example? branches:

public void run()

{

[

Axiom ==> [ A(0, 0.5) D(0.7) F(60) ] A(0, 6) F(100);

A(t, speed) ==> A(t+1, speed);

]

applyInterpretation();

}

public void interpret()

[

A(t, speed) ==> RU(speed*t);

Artificial Chemistry: Prime number generator

A multiset of random integers reacts according to the following rule, thereby distilling prime numbers.

b:int, (* a:int *), (a != b && (b % a) == 0) ==> `b / a`;

Extended L-Systems branches:(XL)

A herbivore model

Model of a tree population being grazed upon by phytophagous animals.

- Plants with two parameters: age t and radius r, represented
by circles of radius r (proportional to energy budget of plant).

- Plants reproduce through seed
- at a certain age and
- above a certain energy (radius) threshold (number of offspring = f(r)).

- Plant dies when
- it has reached maximum age or
- when its energy budget is exhausted (r<0).

- If plant does not die it grows by fixed amount at each time step
- Animals with two parameters: age t and energy budget e,
represented by small circles.

- While not in contact with a plant (i. e. within its radius): animal moves
and consumes fixed amount of its stored energy.

- When in contact with a plant: animal’s radius of movement decreased,
starts "grazing"
