Construction of Some Nonautomatic Sequences by Cellular Automata

Abstract : It is known that if p is a prime number, the columns of linear CA are p-automatic sequences and all p-automatic sequences can be realized by some linear CA with memory. We give some constructions of (nonlinear) CA that realize certain nonautomatic sequences. First, we show through a recoding that from a construction with additional symbols, we can construct a CA using only the symbols occurring in the sequence. This answers a question posed by Rowland and Yassawi. Then, we propose a construction for the characteristic sequence of the integer polynomials, which are nonautomatic sequences by the Minsky–Papert criterion. We also provide a construction based on the indicator of Fibonacci numbers for the Fibonacci word, which is an emblematic nonautomatic sequence.
