This book not only discusses cellular automata (CA) as accouterment
for simulation, but also the actual building of devices within
cellular automata. CA are widely used tools for simulation in
physics, ecology, mathematics, and other fields. But they are also
digital "toy universes" worthy of study in their own right, with
their own laws of physics and behavior. In studying CA for their
own sake, we must look at constructive methods, that is the... more...
