In this paper, we analyze the algebraic structure of some null boundary as well as some periodic boundary 2-D Cellular Automata (CA) rules by introducing a new matrix multiplication operation using only AND, OR instead of most commonly used AND, EX-OR. This class includes any CA whose rule, when written as an algebra, is a finite Abelean cyclic group in case of periodic boundary and a finite commutative cyclic monoid in case of null boundary CA respectively. The concept of 1-D MultiplearXiv:0808.1470v1 fatcat:l2jatu2tpbeu5jnmuere6afy5q
