Generalized Cayley Graphs and Cellular Automata over them    [PDF]

Pablo Arrighi, Simon Martiel, Vincent Nesme
Cayley graphs have a number of useful features: the ability to graphically represent finitely generated group elements and their equality; to name all vertices relative to a point; the fact that they have a well-defined notion of translation, and that they can be endowed with a compact metric. We propose a notion of graph associated to a language, which conserves or generalizes these features. Whereas Cayley graphs are regular; associated graphs are arbitrary, although of a bounded degree. Moreover, it is well-known that cellular automata can be characterized as the set of translation-invariant continuous functions for a distance on the set of configurations that makes it a compact metric space; this point of view makes it easy to extend their definition from grids to Cayley graphs. Similarly, we extend their definition to these arbitrary, bounded degree, time-varying graphs.
