Abstract

Metastability is observed when a physical system is close to a first order phase transition. In this paper the metastable behavior of a two state reversible probabilistic cellular automaton with self-interaction is discussed. Depending on the self-interaction, competing metastable states arise and a behavior very similar to that of the three state Blume-Capel spin model is found.
