The Generic Limit Set of Cellular Automata
Saliha Djenaoui and Pierre Guillon

In topological dynamics, the generic limit set is the smallest closed subset which has a comeager realm of attraction.We study some of its topological properties, and the links with equicontinuity and sensitivity. We emphasize the case of cellular automata, for which the generic limit set is included in all subshift attractors, and discuss directional dynamics, as well as the link with measure-theoretical similar notions.

Keywords: Cellular automata, basin of attraction, limit set, attractor, directional dynamics, Baire category, symbolic dynamics
