Abstract

We investigate the construction of all the periodic structures or “gliders” up to now known in the evolution space of the one-dimensional cellular automaton Rule 110. The production of these periodic structures is developed and presented by means of glider collisions. We provide a methodology based on the phases of each glider to establish the necessary conditions for controlling and displaying the collisions of gliders from the initial configuration.
