Cellular automata can be applied to solve several problems in a variety of areas, such as biology, chemistry, medicine, physics, astronomy, economics, and urban planning. The automata are defined by simple rules that give rise to behavior of great complexity running on very large matrices. 2D applications may require more than 106 x 106 matrix cells, which are usually beyond the computational capacity of local clusters of computers. This paper presents a solution for traditional cellular… CONTINUE READING
