Computer displays of colorful and undulating lava-like forms will decorate living rooms of the future. These forms can already be created using mathematical simulations and hardware-assisted, isosurface computer graphics. In particular, the simulations involve “twisted majority rules” computed using a 3-D cellular automation lattice described in this paper. 



A cellular automata simulation of two-phase flow on the CM-2 Connection Machine computer

A cellular automaton recently developed by D.H. Rothman and J.M. Keller simulates the flow of two incompressible, immiscible, viscous fluids in two dimensions using a sequence of logical operations and table lookups to determine the state of a CA site from its old state and those of its neighbors.

Cellular Automata Models of Disorder And Organization

Cellular automata are versatile enough to offer analogies with almost all the themes discussed at this meeting (in particular: self-organization, dissipative systems, spatial vs. thermal fluctuations, neural networks, optimization, ergodicity-breaking, and ultrametricity).

Fundamentals of interactive computer graphics

The foundations of interactive computer graphics are studied in detail in the second part of this monograph on computer graphics theory andUX.
