An Information-Based Classification of Elementary Cellular Automata

Figure 4

Time series for rule 30 generated by the two initial states of Figure 2. The similarity of the two outputs, each yielding color domains with a typical linear size of about ~10 blocks, does not depend on the size of the CA and is responsible for the stability of Class I3 rules to changes in input.
