Beautiful Science

A one-dimensional 4-state en:cyclic cellular automaton, run for 300 steps from a random initial configuration. The ith row of the image shows the state of the automaton after i steps. The boundaries between colored regions in this diagram can be viewed as particles that move left, move right, or remain stationary, and interact with each other when they collide.

Distribution of the discrete variables θi and φi in a magnetic soliton. The transition from a nonlocalized state at N=1 (top left) to localized states at N>1 is seen.
