Nominal Cellular Automata

Tommaso Bolognesi, Vincenzo Ciancia
2016 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
The emerging field of Nominal Computation Theory is concerned with the theory of Nominal Sets and its applications to Computer Science. We investigate here the impact of nominal sets on the definition of Cellular Automata and on their computational capabilities, with a special focus on the emergent behavioural properties of this new model and their significance in the context of computation-oriented interpretations of physical phenomena. A preliminary investigation of the relations between
