A note on cellular automataJan 29 2019For an arbitrary group $G$ and arbitrary set $A$, we define a monoid structure on the set of all uniformly continuous functions $A^G\to A$ and then we show that it is naturally isomorphic to the monoid of cellular automata $\mathrm{CA}(G, A)$. This gives ... More
