A point function may be defined on the "cells" of cellular approximations to plane figures which retains much of the information of the figures and whose distribution function is relatively invariant with respect to cell size; the function is useful in constructing a quantitative field theory in embryology and a nonaddressed system for pattern generalizing in neurophysiology.
