Langton's ant Version RRLLLRLLLRRR


by Isaske
First published on 22nd September, 2015

Langton's ant is a two-dimensional Turing machine with a very simple set of rules but complex emergent behavior. It was invented by Chris Langton in 1986 and runs on a square lattice of black and white cells. The universality of Langton's ant was proven in 2000. The idea has been generalized in several different ways, such as turmites which add more colors and more states.


La hormiga de Langton es un una máquina de Turing bidimensional con un conjunto de reglas muy sencillo, que sin embargo da lugar a comportamientos emergentes complejos. La hormiga de Langton clásica opera sobre una grilla espacial cuadrada, en que cada celda puede estar en uno de dos estados (blanca o negra, 1 o 0, viva o muerta, etc). Fue inventada por Chris Langton en 1986 y su universalidad se demostró en el año 2000.
