A grid of cells which can be in a number of different states. Each cell may change from one generation to the next depending on the state of its neighbouring cells.

Cellular Automatons can model biological systems, micro-structures in materials, chemical reactions and many other discrete systems. According to Stephen Wolfram's book "A New Kind Of Science", life is a cellular automaton.

Conway's Game Of Life is an example.
