Project Description:
Cellular automata (CA) are a much studied class of discrete dynamical network that support emergent behaviour resulting from homogeneous, local, short range interactions. They are applied in many overlapping areas; to model processes in physical, chemical and biological systems such as fluid dynamics and reaction-difusion; to study self-organization and self-reproduction by the emergence of coherent interacting structures; in mathematics and computation where the systems themselves are the focus of interest. CA dynamics are driven by complex feedback webs that are difficult to treat analytically except for special cases. Understanding these systems depends to a large extent on computer experiments, where a key notion is that state space is connected into basins of attraction.
