Abstract: This elucidation studies ergodicity and equilibrium measures for additive cellular automata with prime states. Additive cellular automata are ergodic with respect to Bernoulli measure unless it is either an identity map or constant. The formulae of measure-theoretic and topological entropies can be expressed in closed forms and the topological pressure is demonstrated explicitly for potential functions that depend on finitely many coordinates. According to these results, Parry measure is inferred to be an equilibrium measure.
Keywords: Cellular automata; additive; equilibrium measure
