It is a general rule of nature that larger organisms are more complex, as measured by the number of distinct types of cells present. Yet, increasing size has both costs and benefts, and the search for understanding the driving forces behind the evolution of multicellularity is becoming a very active area of research. In this talk, I will discuss the mathematics and physics underlying this biological problem.
