Lagniappe

some extra CA morsels
Larger than Life; it's so nonlinear

Kellie Evans' study of rules which generalize Conway's Game to larger range, with variable thresholds for birth and survival.

One or More Recursive Carpets

Fractal carpets with explicitly computable densities are woven by the great majority of solidification rules which add a cell when 1 of 8 neighbors is occupied.

Simulation of the Nonlinear Voter Model

WinCA and CAM8 experiments estimate the phase portrait for a simple two-parameter family of probabilistic CA rules

Cellular Automaton Growth on Z2

We survey the theory of CA crystal growth,
focusing on two-state Range 1 Box rules

Totalistic Growth Rules with Moore Neighborhood

A gallery of complex crystals derived from
exotic nearest neighbor CA growth models

CA and Computational Aesthetics

The graphics and writings of Australian artist
Paul Brown

Life without Death is P-complete

With Cris Moore of SFI, we show how
a complex growth rule emulates Boolean circuits.

The Oscillator Problem for Conway's Life

Recent remarkable discoveries in the Game of Life
by Buckingham, Callahan, Hickerson et al.

Snowflakes & Spirals on the Hex Lattice

Striking images of nucleation and growth
with six-fold symmetry, by Ramiro Perez.

Cosmism: Japan's Brain Builder

If this manifesto by Hugo de Garis seems over the edge, skip to How to Build an Artificial Brain for details of his (interim) implementation on CAM-8.

Modeling of Apparent Competition

Eric Klopfer's analysis of some novel predator-prey effects
in ecological systems
