Some physical phenomena can be simulated by means of CAs. In this page we have prepared a CA to simulate the spread of molecules in space, or the spread of heat in a material.
The sites of a square lattice have values that represents concentration or temperature. At each update, a site's value is replaced by the average of the eight nearest neighbors in its Moore neighborhood.
Indeed, this is not a pure CA, because we let grid nodes to have continuous values.
