This introductory paper gives a short survey of Cellular Automata (CA's), from different points of view. It starts with the main definitions and theoretical results about CA's as an abstract model of computation or as discrete dynamical systems. Then, the main applications of CA's in different fields (biology, physics…) as a model of complex systems are illustrated. Finally, implementations of the CA model on parallel computing platforms are surveyed.

Abstract

This introductory paper gives a short survey of Cellular Automata (CA's), from different points of view. It starts with the main definitions and theoretical results about CA's as an abstract model of computation or as discrete dynamical systems. Then, the main applications of CA's in different fields (biology, physics…) as a model of complex systems are illustrated. Finally, implementations of the CA model on parallel computing platforms are surveyed.
