Probabilistic Cellular Automaton Models for a Fluid Experiment
In the study of cellular automata (CA) there is often the problem of understanding if the observed spatio-temporal behaviour may be significant from a physical point of view. In this contribution we compare the behaviour of an experimental system — a fluid in an annular cell heated from below — with that of suitably chosen probabilistic CA rules. This has been made possible by the reduction of the space-time evolution of the experimental system to a symbolic dynamics.
