OCA

From LifeWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

OCA is an acronym for "other cellular automata". This includes Life-like CAs, isotropic CAs, anisotropic non-totalistic CAs, rules with more than two states, rules that operate on non-square grids or with neighborhoods other than the Moore neighbourhood, and every other type of cellular automaton that is not Conway's Game of Life.

Notable non-Life rules, when they are catalogued on the LifeWiki, have article names prefixed by "OCA:" -- e.g., OCA:HighLife. When these rules support notable patterns that have their own pattern pages, these are stored as subpages of the rule page -- e.g., OCA:HighLife/Bomber.
