Continuous Cellular Automata Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The Continuous Cellular Automata Model creates a one-dimensional array of rational numbers Xi and applies a rule that determines how each cell evolves from one generation to the next. The numerators and denominators of numbers Xi are stored as arbitrary precision Big Integer objects so all computations are exact.  Because arbitrary precision arithmetic is computationally intensive, we use the Parallel Java library to implement the model.

The Continuous Cellular Automata Model was developed by Wolfgang Christian using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is based on the One-Dimensional Continuous Cellular Automata model in Chapter 17 of the book "Building Parallel Programs" by Alan Kaminsky.
