Hi, A partner and I are working on a project that describes fluid dynamic behavior in systems such as hurricanes and galaxy formation, for a college cellular automata physics seminar. It seems that research about the models to create these simulations are extremely hard to find, has anyone done this type of research on Mathematica or would know the form to write the programs? I know that the galaxy formation has been done on Fortran, but hurricanes and similar systems yield almost no results on a literature search. Dr. Wolfram says in his book A New Kind of Science that these type of weather related systems can be described by cellular automata in a similar manner to fluid dynamics, but gives no examples of the programs, can anyone help us?
