Reaction-Diffusion Binary-State Automata

  • Andrew Adamatzky
Part of the Emergence, Complexity and Computation book series (ECC, volume 1)


Here we consider a simplest version of reaction-diffusion automaton: a two-dimensional cellular automaton, where a cell has eight closest neighbours and takes two states, 0 and 1. We earmark state 0 as a substrate and state 1 as a reagent. To imitate diffusion and reaction we allow state 1 to spread: a cell in state 0 takes state 1 – under certain conditions – if it has some neighbours in state 1.
