Title:A unified theory for the origin of grid cells through the lens of pattern formation

This paper explains theoretically how hexagonal grid patterns can occur from simple constraints. Reviewers uniformly liked this paper and it is an easy accept. The work was viewed as solid but somewhat incremental contribution. It would have been selected for an oral if it discussed the connection to AI/ML and/or made testable predictions and verified them.
