Computational Mechanics of Cellular Automata : An Example

  title={Computational Mechanics of Cellular Automata : An Example},
  author={James E. Hanson and James P. Crutchfield},
We illustrate and extend the techniques of computational mechanics in explicating the structures that emerge in the space-time behavior of elementary one-dimensional cellular automaton rule 54. The CA’s dominant regular domain is identified and a domain filter is constructed to locate and classify defects in the domain. The primary particles are identified and a range of interparticle interactions is studied. The deterministic equation of motion of the filtered spacetime behavior is derived… CONTINUE READING
