Simple rules can generate complex behaviour. I’m reading A New Kind of Science by Stephen Wolfram. A key idea of the book is that a simple rule, applied iteratively, can generate complex behaviour. The difference between Rules 222, 90, and 30 are trivial, yet they generate vastly different results.
In this post we explore the principles and implement the Elementary Cellular Automata system in F#.
