Conservative cellular automata such as reversible cellular automata (RCA) and number-conserving cellular automata (NCCA) can be thought as models of the physical conservation law of mass or energy and they are used for modeling physical phenomena. In this paper, we show that complex functions such as logical universality, self-reproduction, and… CONTINUE READING
