A simple function to simulate Conway's Game of Life in Matlab. The parameters include the size of the field, the title of the plot, the plot color, and a way to enable period detection. In addition, you can pass a char array to the function that is automatically processed to a start pattern with the help function Generate_Pattern.m. The preview image can be generated by the command "Game_of (100, 'Conway', 'Game of Life', 'r', 4)".

With the char array 'GliderCannon' for the start pattern you can directly import the classic glider cannon.
