Lazy Cellular Automata with Communicating Processes

Authors: Sampson, Adam T., Welch, Peter H., Barnes, Frederick R. M.


Cellular automata (CAs) are good examples of systems in which large numbers of autonomous entities exhibit emergent behaviour.Using the occam-pi and JCSP communicating process systems, we show how to construct “lazy” and “just-in-time” models of cellular automata, which permit very efficient parallel simulation of sparse CA populations on shared-memory and distributed systems.
