There is a history of growth-based procedural modelling for a wide range of geometry domain, from trees to urban environments. Growth based modelling has the advantage of emergent behaviour which is easily understood, and geometrically smooth. Such smoothness is important for domains such as model fitting and rule creation user interfaces, as explored in previous work. Goals for this project may include creating a unified growth language useful for multiple domains and creating user interfaces for growth-based modelling.

<p>Formal applications for research degree study should be made online through the <a href="http://www.leeds.ac.uk/rsa/prospective_students/apply/I_want_to_apply.html">University's website</a>. Please state clearly in the research information section that the research degree you wish to be considered for is ‘Growth Paradigms for Procedural Modeling’ as well as <a href="https://eps.leeds.ac.uk/computing/staff/1545/dr-tom-kelly">Dr Tom Kelly</a> as your proposed supervisor.</p> <p>If English is not your first language, you must provide evidence that you meet the University's minimum English language requirements (below).</p> <p><em>We welcome applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.</em></p>
