PascGalois Zn, like PascGalois JE, is a platform independent program developed for the exploration of one and two dimensional cellular automata. The difference between the two is that PascGalois Zn produces cellular automata over only Zn but allows you to use update rules that employ both addition and multiplication. PascGalois JE produces cellular automata over several classes of finite group structures, and hence the update rules can contain only the single group operation. So if you are only working over Zn you probably want to use this program but if you are interested in automata over other groups like Dn or Sn the PascGalois JE program might be a better choice. You can find more software and classroom resources on the PascGalois Project web site. This is a Java application, so if the Java JRE is not installed on your computer download and install the current version of the Java JRE (1.7.0 or later). You can get the most current version at the Oracle Web Site.
