Automaton Mechanics of Mutualism
We simulate mutualistic relationships in a two-dimensional hexagonal cellular automaton. Every cell takes three states: 0, 1 and 2. States 1 and 2 represent species species ‘1’ and species ‘2’. State 0 represents an ‘empty space’, or a substrate. Two processes must be simulated: propagation of species and survival of species. A cell of the hexagonal cellular automaton can be occupied exclusively by ‘empty space’, state 0, or by one of the species, states 1 or 2.
