What is the “Game of Life?”

The “Game of Life” (often referred to as Life) is not your typical game. There are no actual players and the outcome is based on the initial configuration that is manipulated by certain rules.

Life is an example of cellular automaton.

  • Grid of cells

    • Any finite number of dimensions

  • Cells

    • Binary – On/Off, Alive/Dead, 1/0

    • A set is called a neighborhood

    • Fixed rules are applied to each cell of the entire grid simultaneously to determine the next “generation” of cells.
