# Generating Pseudorandom Numbers with Elementary Cellular Automata

Generating Pseudorandom Numbers with Elementary Cellular Automata

This Demonstration generates a pseudorandom number using various class-3 and class-4 elementary cellular automata from initial conditions. The black and white squares from the central column are converted to base 2 to give a number between 0 and 1. You can increase the number of digits with the "size" control.
