Cellular Automata Tutorial

Unit 1 Introduction

  • In a Dynamical System the new state depends only in the old state. They are discrete or continuous in time and state.
    • Continuous, described by diferential ecuations
    • Discrete, x t+1 = f(xt)

Cellular automata are discrete and deterministic dynamical systems in time and state. States split in pieces called cells (discrete values). Cells can have neighbors. As time goes by a new cell is produced depending on the old cell and the state of the neighbors.
