Cellular Automata: Simplicity Behind Complexity
by Alejandro Salcido
Publisher: InTech 2011
Number of pages: 566
Cellular automata make up a class of completely discrete dynamical systems, which have became a core subject in the sciences of complexity due to their conceptual simplicity, easiness of implementation for computer simulation, and their ability to exhibit a wide variety of amazingly complex behavior.
