Cellular automata model of HIV infection on tilings of the plane

Chris Ormerod


In this study, we explore the application of R.M.Zorzenon dos Santoses' model of the evolution of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), to Cellular Automata on different tilings of the plane. We investigate how the geometry of the model changes the overall dynamics of the system. In particular how issues of dimension and different methods of defining nearest neighbours allows us to modify the model to more accurately simulate the underlying system.

Keywords: Cellular Automata, HIV, infection, model, tilings, tessellation.
