Statistical Physics and Stromatolite Growth: New Perspectives on an Ancient Dilemma

Batchelor, Murray; Burne, Robert; Henry, B I; Slatyer, T.


This paper outlines our recent attempts to model the growth and form of microbialites from the perspective of the statistical physics of evolving surfaces. Microbialites arise from the environmental interactions of microbial communities (microbial mats).
