On real time and linear time cellular automata. (English) Zbl 0547.68050

Summary: The recognition power of one-way and two-way cellular automata under various time restrictions is compared. Generalized cellular automata (GCA) are introduced and it is shown that real time GCA are equivalent to 2n-time cellular automata. Various restricted classes of GCA are shown to be equivalent to GCA.
