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
