## Summary

The approach of the paper is to use a genotype/phenotype distance correlation plot to study the complexity of a system that is determined by a genotype and exhibits som ephenotypic behavior. This is equivalent to simply plotting the distance of two phenotypes (Hamming of the state after 100 iteration starting from a single activated cell for CAs) against the distance between two genotypes (Hamming distance between the rules for a CA).
