Edward Fredkin (Carnegie Mellon University)
Cellular Automata and Physics
Until very recently it was thought that a discrete space-time-slate Cellular Automaton model of physics, based on a cartesian lattice, could not model physical processes with continuous symmetries. We will discuss the role of QM spin and Noether's Theorem in new discrete, cartesian space-time-state models that include the apparently continuous symmetries of Physics.
