One-dimensional cellular automata are analysed via their generalized permutivity. Invariant subalphabets provide a systematic way of identifying periodic and aperiodic tilings as well as stationary distributions invariant under the cellular automaton iteration. In the case of several invariant subalphabets a hierarchy of interaction phenomena arise. In particular the interaction of subalphabets can generate random walks as well as their degenerate forms. A comprehensive scheme emerges that…

Random walks in cellular automata

Topological defects or phase boundaries discerned in a number of one-dimensional cellular automata appear to perform random walks as well as simpler motions are analyzed to result in a complete classification in the partially permutive case.

The dynamics of defect ensembles in one-dimensional cellular automata

We investigate the dynamics of ensembles of diffusive defects in one-dimensional deterministic cellular automata. The work builds on earlier results on individual random walks in cellular automata.

Commuting Cellular Automata

We study the algebraic conditions under which two cellular automata can commute. We show that if either rule is permutive, i.e., one-to-one on its leftmost and rightmost inputs, then the other rule

This paper considers an alternative approach to generate pseudorandom sequences through orthogonal CA (OCA), which guarantees a better amount of diffusion.

Enumerating Orthogonal Latin Squares Generated by Bipermutive Cellular Automata

The general case of nonlinear rules in bipermutive cellular automata, which could be interesting for cryptographic applications such as the design of cheater-immune secret sharing schemes, is addressed.

Non-Abelian Cellular Automata

We show that a wide variety of nonlinear cellular automata can be written as a semidirect product of linear ones, and that these CAs can be predicted in parallel time [cal O](log[super 2] t). This

Algebraic Properties of the Block Transformation on Cellular Automata

If the blocked rule satisfies an identity which holds for a broad class of algebras, then the underlying rule must have essentially the same structure, and must depend only on its leftmost and rightmost inputs; roughly speaking, that the block transformation cannot turn a nonlinear rule into a linear one.

The kink of cellular automaton rule 18 performs a random walk

We give an exact characterization of the movement of a single kink in the elementary cellular automaton Rule 18. It is a random walk with independent increments as well as independent delay times.

The Interaction Dynamics of the Kinks in the Cellular Automaton Rule 18

A series of computer simulations on the joint motion of two kinks in the elementary cellular automaton Rule 18 show a remarkably close approximation to the case of independent annihilating random walks except at close range interaction where combinatorial conditions impose an asymmetry on the dynamics.

A detailed description of such ``reactions'' sheds new light on the large-time behavior of range-1 Rule 54 with a very slow decrease of the particle number, as ${\mathit{t}}^{\mathrm{\ensuremath{-}}\ensure Math{\gamma}}$ (£0.15).

The attractor—basin portrait of a cellular automaton

The attractor-basin portrait of nonlinear elementary CA rule 18 is described, whose global dynamics is largely determined by a single regular attracting domain, and it is confirmed that in rule 18, isolated dislocation trajectories, as well as a dislocation gas, agree extremely well with the classical model of annihilating diffusive particles.
