abstract: 
Classifying cellular automata in order to capture the
notion of chaos algorithmically is a challenging problem
than can be tackled in many ways. We here give a
classification based on the computation of a macroscopic
parameter, the
d
spectrum, and show how our classifying scheme can be
used to separate the chaotic ECA from the nonchaotic ones.

The first source gives you the `gzipped' PostScript, the second the plain PostScript and the third the format for the Adobe accrobat reader. Depending on the installation of your web browser, at least one of these should (after some amount of time) pop up a window for you that shows the full article. If this is not the case, you should contact your system administrator to install your browser correctly.
Due to limitations of your local software, the two formats may show up differently on your screen. If eg you use xpdf to visualize pdf, some of the graphics in the file may not come across. On the other hand, pdf has a capacity of giving links to sections, bibliography and external references that will not appear with PostScript.
