Further remarks

From http://www.mathcs.sjsu.edu/capow/readme.htm: ``CAPOW is a program for evolving one-di\-men\-sional cellular automata (Cas) using continuous as well as discrete states. The continuous CAs model the linear wave equation, the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam nonlinear wave equations, the damped driven oscillator, and the wave oscillator. There is also a two-dimensional wave equation in this version. CAPOW is being developed by Rudy Rucker and students at San Jose State University under a contract from the Electric Power Research Institute.''
