A Note on Elementary Cellular Automata Classification
Genaro J. Martinez

We overview and compare classifications of elementary cellular automata, including Wolfram’s, Wuensche’s, Li and Packard, communication complexity, power spectral, topological, surface, compression, lattices, and morphological diversity classifications. This paper summarises several classifications of elementary cellular automata (ECA) and compares them with a newly proposed one, that induced by endowing rules with memory.

Keywords: Elementary cellular automata, classification, memory.
