 Exploring the Space of Cellular Automata  Langton, Hayden, Gutowitz, Carr, Fraser
Cellular automata (CA) are discrete space/time logical universes, obeying their own local physics according to given rules. Space in CA is partitioned into discrete volume elements called "cells" and time progresses in discrete steps. Each cell of space
