Behavior of cellular automata with a limited number of cells

The behavior of cellular automata with a limited number of cells. In each case the right neighbor of the rightmost cell is taken to be the leftmost cell and vice versa. The pattern produced always eventually repeats, but the period of repetition can increase rapidly with the size of the system.
