Standard CA

Lattice
      lattice structure:   two-dimensional Euclidean grids
      lattice size:   at most $65535 \times 65535$ cells
      boundary conditions:   fixed, toroidal, reflecting
Neighborhoods
      limitations:   none

BibTeX entries

None.

Further remarks

CaSim also allows the simulation of one-tape one-head Turing machines.
