Carmel - I don't know if this will help, but there are a number of different publications from COMAP that deal with growth/decay application problems. You could get a catalogue by checking out their website: http://www.comap.com/ The other thing I might suggest is to do a search on the Net. One of the things I have found useful is searching using the term 'mathematical modeling'. You tend to get quite a few good sites with interesting applications. Another suggestion that struck me was checking on cellular automota (or automata) - I can't remember which. As I recall you get some nice examples that way. Good luck. Rick
