Complex systems, organization and networks of automata
Pattern formation in definitely responsible for the existence of a frozen regime. The isolation of small patches of oscillating automata is at the origin of the small periods of the attractors. It is also responsible for the robustness of the dynamics with respect to small changes in initial conditions or in the transition rules of a few automata. It is the basis of the interpretation of the attractors of the dynamics as an “organized behavior”.
