Paper Abstract

This paper describes a cellular automaton based on adaptive function of living systems. We simulated the behavior on a computer giving each cell local rules such as 'death', 'birth', and 'division' like an organism. The computational results showed that the model generates a clear framed structure for a mechanical condition. We also reported on diverse topological structures inhered in the system.
