Causal Network Generated by a Mobile Automaton
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
This Demonstration shows the evolution of a mobile automaton as a causal network. Connections are the causal relationships between updating events, which are nodes of the network.
