Erin Hastings, Ratan Guha, Kenneth O. Stanley
2007 2007 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Games  
This paper presents NEAT Particles, a new design, representation, and animation method for particle systems tailored to real-time effects in video games and simulations.  ...  Particle systems are a representation, computation, and rendering method for special effects such as fire, smoke, explosions, electricity, water, magic, and many other phenomena.  ...  CONCLUSIONS NEAT Particles is a design, representation, and animation method for particle systems that allows particle effects to be evolved with NEAT and IEC rather than hand coded.  ...

Feeding in a Calcareous Sponge: Particle Uptake by Pseudopodia

Sally P. Leys, Dafne I. Eerkes-Medrano
2006 The Biological Bulletin  
Few large particles (0.5-and 1.0-m beads and bacteria) contacted the collar microvilli; most were phagocytosed by lamellipodia at the lateral or apical cell surface, and clumps of particles were engulfed  ...  These observations offer a different view of particle uptake in sponges, and suggest that, at least in syconoid sponges, uptake of particles is less dependent on the strictly sieving function of the collar  ...  Braybrook for technical assistance with SEM, and the director and staff of the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre where portions of this work were conducted.  ...
