Stochastically driven self-organisation

Problem of constructing the shortest path with given geometric and topological constraints is known to be very hard from the computational point of view. However, simple organisms perform quite well solving problems of this kind. I will show how one can address the construction of various minimal structures using very simple stochastic dynamics.
