Other Cellular Automata Rules

Introduction | Rules


All the rules described here are similar to Life, with some minor changes. Unless otherwise noted, they all are all two state (i.e. cells are dead or alive), totalistic (i.e. a cell's state is determined solely on its own state and the sum of its neighbors without regard to their relative positions), and use a Moore neighborhood (i.e. a two-dimensional square lattice in which every cell's neighborhoods consists of the 4 orthogonally adjacent and 4 diagonally adjacent cells).
