Multi-state probabilistic cellular automata are developed for forest fire modeling. We propose a forest fire dynamics model considering intensities of fires as multiple states and having the probability that fire spread depends on the states of the neighboring cells. Furthermore, the idea of percolation threshold is introduced to characterize the strength of the fire propagation. Specifically, we propose a new method to derive the critical probability, below which forest fires do not expand to…

Forest fire is one of the most important source of land degradation that lead to deforestation and desertification processes. Thus, prediction of forest fire front is necessary to control it. In this
Size of wildfires in the Euro-Mediterranean region: observations and theoretical analysis
Abstract. MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) satellite observations of fire size and ERA-Interim meteorological reanalysis are used to derive a relationship between burnt area and
Controllability Analysis of One- and Two-Dimensional Additive Real-Valued Cellular Automata
In this paper, we study the regional controllability of oneand two-dimensional additive realvalued cellular automata with periodic, fixed, and reflective boundary conditions. The global transition
Estimating the Spread of Fire in Buildings Problem presented by
AWE is developing a general fire modelling capability at a city scale and want to upgrade their current capability by incorporating suitable building-scale models into the simulation. The main
Wildfires in the Euro-Mediterranean region: links with meteorological processes
The question this thesis stems from is: ”To which extent weather controls the life cycle of forest fires in the Mediterranean?”. The analysis developed here is based on remotely-sensed fire data,
Unifying criticality and the neutral theory of neural avalanches.
It is shown that the neutral theory of neural avalanches can be unified with criticality, which requires fine tuning of control parameters, and rule out self-organized criticality.

Hyperbolic reaction-diffusion equations for a forest fire model
Forest fire models have been widely studied from the context of self-organized criticality and from the ecological properties of the forest and combustion. On the other hand, reaction-diffusion
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Compact directed percolation with modified boundary rules: a forest fire model
A modified version of compact directed percolation on a square lattice is examined in the context of a model problem for the spread of forest fires. The modification relates to conditioning the
Dynamics of forest fires as a directed percolation model
Forest fires under directional constraints, such as wind or local topography, generalise the bond percolation problem of symmetrical fires. The authors analyse the mass M and the radius of gyration
On elliptical model for forest fire spread modeling and simulation
Studying and approximating spatio–temporal models for epidemic spread and control
A lattice-based susceptible-infected model in which the infection of a host occurs through two distinct processes: a background infective challenge representing primary infection from external sources and a short-range interaction representing the secondary infection of susceptibles by infectives within the population is considered.
Wildland surface fire spread modelling, 1990–2007. 3: Simulation and mathematical analogue models
In recent years, advances in computational power have led to an increase in attempts to model the behaviour of wildland fires and to simulate their spread across landscape. The present series of
