All binary number-conserving cellular automata based on adjacent cells are intrinsically one-dimensional

Barbara Wolnik , Bernard De Baets


A binary number-conserving cellular automaton is a discrete dynamical system that models the movement of particles in a d-dimensional grid. Each cell of the grid is either empty or contains a particle. In subsequent timesteps the particles move between the cells, but in one cell there can be at most one particle at a time. In thispaper, the von Neumann neighborhood is considered, which means that in each time step a particle can moveto an adjacent cell only. It is proven that regardless of the dimensiond, all of these cellular automata are trivial,as they are intrinsically one-dimensional. Thus, for givend, there are only 4d+1 binary number-conserving cellular automata with the von Neumann neighborhood: the identity rule and the shift and traffic rules in each ofthe 2d possible directions.
