We may define a forest of stunted trees as follows: Consider an infinite background of nodes at the vertices of an infinite plane tessellation of equilateral triangles., and start from a straight line of nodes at unit distance apart, which we shall consider as the ground; other parallel lines of nodes are then spaced at successive levels of linearly increasing heights above the ground. Any node may be live (if a tree passes through it) or vacant otherwise. Any live node may give rise to a…

This paper is a self-contained sequal to Miller (1970), entitled ‘Periodic forests of stunted trees’. It is concerned with ‘Copses’ and ‘Tessellations’ based on an infinite background of nodes at the…

Periodic forest whose largest clearings are of size 3

- MathematicsPhilosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Series A, Mathematical and Physical Sciences

The number of distinct periodic forests whose largest clearings are of size n is known to be 1 (n = 1), 1 (n = 2), 12 (n = 3), and ∞ (n = 4). In this note it is shown that there exist an infinity of…

Algebraic Dynamics of a One-Parameter Class of Maps over Z 2

- Mathematics

Motivated by the Ducci Map and Wolfram’s Rule 90, this paper studies the relationship of the period lengths of the maps W (n, k) = In + T k n as a function of n and k, where In is the identity map…

Shift-symmetric configurations in two-dimensional cellular automata: Irreversibility, insolvability, and enumeration.

- Computer ScienceChaos

This work employs group-theoretic methods, which allow us to identify and enumerate these inputs, and argue about irreversible system behaviors with undesired effects on many computational problems, to better grasp and understand symmetry of configurations in decentralized toroidal architectures.

Algorithmic Complexity in Textile Patterns

The Normalized Compression Distance is a parameter-free, feature-free metric used to measure similarity between objects given approximations of their algorithmic complexity and generates an evolutionary tree consistent with historical information on Turkmen tribes.

Statistical mechanics of cellular automata

- Computer Science
- 1983

Analysis is given of ''elementary'' cellular automata consisting of a sequence of sites with values 0 or 1 on a line, with each site evolving deterministically in discrete time steps according to p definite rules involving the values of its nearest neighbors.

Algebraic properties of cellular automata

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- 1984

Algebraic techniques are used to give an extensive analysis of the global properties of a class of finite cellular automata, and the complete structure of state transition diagrams is derived in terms of algebraic and number theoretical quantities.
