Abstract

We show that the cellular automaton proposed by two of the authors (D.T. and J.M.) is obtained from the discrete Toda lattice equation through a special limiting procedure. Also by applying a similar kind of limiting procedure to the N-soliton solution of the discrete Toda lattice equation, we obtain the N-soliton solution for this cellular automaton.
