cellular automata


A cellular automaton is a collection of "colored" cells on a grid of specified shape that evolves through a number of discrete time steps according to a set of rules based on the states of neighboring cells. The rules are then applied iteratively for as many time steps as desired (Wolfram World); cellular automata are a form of ABM and analogous in many ways with  CAS
