A Deterministic Approach to the Synchronization of Cellular Automata

Garcia, J.; Garcia, P.;

  • Published: 10 Mar 2011
In this work we introduce a deterministic scheme of synchronization of linear and nonlinear cellular automata (CA) with complex behavior, connected through a master-slave coupling. By using a definition of Boolean derivative, we use the linear approximation of the automata to determine a function of coupling that promotes synchronization without perturbing all the sites of the slave system.
