Wolfram's Cellular Automata Rule #126

    Newer Older

    I added a bit of color, but the real credit goes to Stephen Wolfram; this illustration is in his book, "A New Kind of Science," which I'm reading for my complex systems class.

      Hah! Which CSCS? Rick Riolo still teaching 530? :) Fun topics if I recall. (though the models I was programming always kinda seem to veer off into some instability and blow up or die off).

      CSCS 501, with Rick Riolo. Pretty fun, but a TON of reading. I've read more about computational complexity than I can ever regurgitate. ;-)

      Hm. Stephen Wolfram who is the founder of Wolfram Software that makes Mathematica? I used to pass their headquarters all the time while living in Champaign.

      Did you actually manage to read the whole book / substantial part of it? I never managed to pass the 1st 100 pages.

      I read about 200 pages, selections for a class. The book is an amazing example of hubris, but has some interesting ideas nonetheless, and really lovely images of cellular automata.

      That's the kind of image that should go on those fuzzy posters that they sell in gas stations.
