The A2 automaton

In the post “Evolution of the aliveness of cells in a cellular automaton” I promised that I’d post a paper about the automaton I used to generate the pictures and the subsequent video. So here it is. But be aware that this is my very first (semi) mathematical paper ever, so don’t be to harsh with critics :)

You may grab the PDF file here or read the iPaper below

Evolution of the aliveness of cells in a cellular automaton

The video above shows the evolution of the graph from the previous post. Again this is without further explanation, and just for the prettiness of it.
Probably I’ll post a paper which formally describes the automaton used and a couple of (proven) attributes of it.
