The three classes of cellular automaton behavior discussed so far are analogous to three classes of behavior found in the solutions to differential equations (continuous dynamical systems). For some differential equations the solutions obtained with any initial conditions approach a fixed point at large times. This behavior is analogous to class 1 cellular automaton behavior. In a second class of differential equations, the limiting solution at large times is a cycle in which the parameters vary periodically with time. These equations are analogous to class 2 cellular automata. Finally, some differential equations have been found to exhibit complicated, apparently chaotic behavior depending in detail on their initial conditions. With the initial conditions specified by decimals, the solutions to these differential equations depend on progressively higher and higher order digits in the initial conditions. This phenomenon is analogous to the dependence of a particular site value on progressively more distant initial site values in the evolution of a class 3 cellular automaton. The solutions to this final class of differential equations tend to ''strange'' or ''chaotic'' attractors (see Robert Shaw, ''Strange Attractors, Chaotic Behavior, and Information Flow,'' Zeitschrift für Naturforschung 36A(1981):80), which form Cantor sets in direct analogy with those found in class 3 cellular automata. The correspondence between classes of behavior found in cellular automata and those found in continuous dynamical systems supports the generality of these classes. Moreover, the greater mathematical simplicity of cellular automata suggests that investigation of their behavior may elucidate the behavior of continuous dynamical systems.
