Emergence and Collapse of Order in Ad Hoc Cellular Automata
A system that shows life-like properties requires moderate complexity, so-called the “edge of chaos” state. To investigate how such state is maintained by a system in which agents have limited access to the information about other agents, a simple cellular automata-based model, called ad hoc cellular automata (ACA) is designed and its behaviour is examined. This model shows complex Class 3-like pattern and follows a power law relation. It is also found that the classification of the model is totally different from elementary cellular automata in terms of entropy.
