What process is the sequence of three illustrations showing?

A cell is creating an identical matching cell.


The first illustration shows poles forming in the cell, connected by spindles. The next illustration shows the cell’s nucleus broken down, allowing the chromosomes to line up across the center of the spindle. The third illustration shows each chromosome splitting apart into two identical chromatids, as one half of the cell pulls the matching sets of chromosomes apart. It appears that the cell is attempting to reproduce itself.
