Abstract

We study global and local periods of the cellular automaton Q2R, the equivalent model on a triangular grid (X2R) and a Kawasaki-Q2R update. The first two show similar results in both the global and local periods. We find a critical energy \(E_{cp}=-0.8700 \pm 0.0006\) for Q2R and \(E_{cp} = -0.88408 \pm 0.0004\) for X2R. In the Kawasaki-Q2R automaton dynamics finite global periods are present exclusively at very low energies and no critical energy is found. However, in all three cellular automata there is an evident formation of clusters of finite cycles. Ergodicity is violated.
