bind to  

Robert P. Munafo, 1999 Feb 2.



Definition: (of two mu-atoms) to share a point in common with a larger -atom. The two mu-atoms are adjacent and the common point between them is called the bond. By convention, a Seed is said to bind to itself at its cusp. (From The Fractal Geometry of Nature, also see the bibliography.)
