The EJS Cellular Automata Rules Model shows a spatial lattice which can have any one of a finite number of states and which are updated synchronously in discrete time steps according to a local (nearby neighbor) rule. You can change the lattice size, pick different rules (0 to 255 as classified by Stephen Wolfram), and choose different initial starting conditions (toggle a cell on and off by clicking on a lattice site). You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
The Cellular Automata Rules model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_ms_explicit_Automata1DRules.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models. Additional Ejs models are available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
