A low-level language developed at the Technical University of Munich. L0 was typed and had the usual flow control, but only 3-address expressions. Higher level languages, L1 and L2 were planned.

Let l0 be the length of the filament before the forces are applied, l its length when the body is subjected to the forces.
The average extension of the filament is measured by the fraction (l − l0)/l0.
