# Histogram of Flipping Cellular Automaton

Histogram of Flipping Cellular Automaton

The number of black cells on each row of a cellular automaton (plotted at the lower left) gives some information about the dynamical behavior of the automaton. The flipping cellular automaton shown here alternates between two cellular automaton rules on successive steps. To see a standard elementary cellular automaton, simply set the first and second rules to have the same value.

The histogram shows the number of rows whose black cell counts lie within each range.
