Sexyloop: Self-Reproduction, Evolution and Sex in Cellular Automata

Abstract

We created a simple evolutionary system, sexyloop, on a deterministic ten-state five-neighbour cellular automaton (CA) where self-reproducing loops have the capability of sex. With this ability, the loops are capable of transferring genetic material into other loops. This work was based on Sayama's evoloop which was transformed by adding a new state and new… (More)
