A novel plant cell division algorithm based on ellipse/ellipsoid fitting
Keywords: cell division, biomechanics, turgor pressure, thin-walled structure, Hooke's law, Newton's law, ellipse fitting, ellipsoid fitting
Highlights: A novel plant cell division algorithm is presented for both 2D and 3D representation of cells. The position and orientation of the dividing cell wall were determined by fitting ellipse/ellipsoid to the cell vertices. The new wall is then inserted along the minor diameter of the fitted ellipse/ellipsoid perpendicular to the major diameter of the fitted ellipse/ellipsoid.
