Game on a String
Two States 0 (black) and 1 (white)
Neighborhood 3 cells
A Transition Rule 2 x 2 x 28 possibilities have
to be specified
  • 3 Black White
  • 2 Black Black
  • 1 Black Black
  • 3 White White

Generic Rule
Denomination of the Rules Wolfram

for center cell 0 1 1 1
1 1 1 0 In binary notation
0 26 25 24 23 22 21 0
126 Possible patterns
Outputs 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

gt256 possible general rules
A Game or Something More?
Sierpinski triangle a fractal
I. a trivial state
II. simple or periodic structures
III. chaotic structures
IV. complex migrating structures
Game on a 2D grid
Neumann Neighborhood
Moore Neighborhood
NN - Possibilities to be specified 25 32 gt
Number of Possible Rules 232 huge
Simple totalistic rules Conways Game of Life
(Moore Nbh.)
Any live cell with fewer than 2 live neighbors
dies, as if by loneliness. Any live cell with
more than 3 live neighbors dies, as if by
overcrowding. Any live cell with 2 or 3 live
neighbors lives, unchanged, to the next
generation. Any empty (dead) cell with exactly
3 live neighbors comes to life.

CA in Physics/Biology Growth Phenomena
diffusion-limited aggregation
Particles (blue) move randomly in the grid. When
a blue particles touches a green solid particle,
it also turns green and "sticks. Particle
density (parameter) a percentage, saying
what fraction of sites will contain blue
particles at the beginning. The shape of the
branching structure (fractal) depends on the
initial density of blue particles.
Ben-Jacob et al., 1994
CA in Physics Traffic modeling Nagel-Schreckenber
g model a probabilistic cellular automaton
The street is divided into cells, that may
contain cars with velocity v
Step 1 acceleration All cars that have not already reached the maximal velocity vmax, accelerate by one unit v -gt v1
Step 2 safety distance If a car has d empty cells in front of it, and its velocity is v larger then d, it reduces the velocity to d v -gtmind,v
Step 3 randomization With probability p, the velocity is reduced by one unit v -gt v-1
Step 4 drivingCar n moves forward vn cells xn -gt xnvn.
Cyclic boundary conditions
Traffic modeling continued
green v4, khaki v3, brown v2, yellow v1,
red v0
Having p0 second-order phase transition at a
critical car density

Self-reproduction The Idea of János NEUMANN, in
1948, before the discovery of the DNA! gt
development of the Cellular Automata Science
Langtons loop
8 states, 29 rules
Tempesti, 1998
Self-reproduction with Evolution? Artificial
Life, Evoloop
Collision of two SR loops may lead to third,
different SR loop Hurted SR loops may
disappear Smaller individuals were naturally
selected? Or just fragmentation?
So, what are cellular automata?
Dynamical System a rule that describes the time
evolution of the state (x) of an arbitrary
system The system state at time t is a
description of the system which is sufficient to
predict the future states of the system without
recourse to states prior to t. Continuous in
state and time differential equations Dis
crete in state and time cellular automata
Some Special Behavior of Dynamical
Systems Fixed point x(t1)x(t) for all
tgtt0 Limit cycle x(tk)x(t) for all tgtt0
Separating Length Scales combining CA and
Differential Equations
