Pink-tongued, green alien-like worm creates a buzz in Taiwan and worldwide (VIDEO)
A man fishing in Taiwan has caught a green, creepy-crawly worm-like creature with an overlong pink tongue. Wei Cheng Jian captured the monstrous specimen in the port of Penghu on film and posted a vid...
Elementary cellular automaton
In mathematics and computability theory, an elementary cellular automaton is a one-dimensional cellular automaton where there are two possible states (labeled 0 and 1) and the rule to determine the st...
Reversible cellular automaton
A reversible cellular automaton is a cellular automaton in which every configuration has a unique predecessor. That is, it is a regular grid of cells, each containing a state drawn from a finite set o...
Life-like cellular automaton
A cellular automaton (CA) is Life-like (in the sense of being similar to Conway's Game of Life) if it meets the following criteria:This class of cellular automata is named for the Game of Life (B3/S23...

Sawtooth (cellular automaton)
In a cellular automaton, a finite pattern is called a sawtooth if its population grows without bound but does not tend to infinity. In other words, a sawtooth is a pattern with population that reaches...
Second-order cellular automaton
A second-order cellular automaton is a type of reversible cellular automaton (CA) invented by Edward Fredkin where the state of a cell at time t depends not only on its neighborhood at time t − ...
Hashlife
Hashlife is a memoized algorithm for computing the long-term fate of a given starting configuration in Conway's Game of Life and related cellular automata, much more quickly than would be possible usi...
Video Life
Video Life is a rare video game for the Atari 2600. It is a version of the zero-player cellular automaton known as Conway's Game of Life. Video Life was only available through a special mail order off...
Movable cellular automaton
The Movable cellular automaton (MCA) method is a method in computational solid mechanics based on the discrete concept. It provides advantages both of classical cellular automaton and discrete element...
Toothpick sequence
In geometry, the toothpick sequence is a sequence of 2-dimensional patterns which can be formed by repeatedly adding line segments ("toothpicks") to the previous pattern in the sequence.The first stag...
