Cloud Chamber

The Cloud Chamber model is similar to the Billiards model, but in this model, the movement of the balls causes a change in the temperature (shown by change in color) of the cells below them, according to the following rules:

  • A ball occupying a cell causes it to heat at a rate of alpha*current temperature.
  • Every cell looses heat at a rate of beta*current temperature.
  • The temperature in the cells diffuses to the other cells of the model (using the method of simple diffusion from an earlier model).
