EXPLORING DISCRETE DYNAMICS is a comprehensive guide to studying cellular automata and discrete dynamical networks with the classic software Discrete Dynamics Laboratory (DDLab). These collective networks are at the core of complexity and emergent self-organisation. With interactive graphics, DDLab is able to explore an huge diversity of behaviour -- mostly terra incognita -- space-time patters, but also basins of attraction, mathematical objects representing the convergent flow in state-space. Applications range within physics, mathematics, biology, cognition, society, economics and computation, and more specifically in neural and genetic networks, artificial life, and a theory of memory.random wiring, wires cross | | untangled random wiring Figure 17.9: Untangling the wiring: wire connection points to the 1d pseudo-neighborhood for the active cell are rearranged so that the wires do not cross, ...
