Class of 2012


David Smrčka acquired his bachelor’s degree in applied physics at the Palacky University in 2011, and currently he is aiming for master’s degree. He grew up in Olomouc, a picturesque town in the Czech Republic. When he is not studying, he likes to spend his time engaging in some sports activity or reading books.

Project: Exploring Possibilities of Reversibility in Two-Dimensional Block Cellular Automata for Physical Systems

Reversibility is an important part of many physical systems. Most of classical cellular automata are not reversible. On the other hand, a block cellular automaton (BCA) can produce reversiblity more easily. We would like to focus on working with two-dimensional BCA. The project goal is to search through the computational space of these systems and look for evolution that could be used for describing physical systems. Firstly, we will concentrate on the motion of the fluids and thermodynamical diffusion.
