Flexible Time and the Evolution of One-Dimensional Cellular Automata
Markus Redeker

Here I describe a view of the evolution of cellular automata that allows to operate on larger structures. Instead of calculating the next state of all cells in one step, the method here developed uses a time slice that can proceed at different places differently. This allows to “jump” over the evolution of known structures in a single step.

Keywords: Rule 110, one-dimensional cellular automata.
