This work investigates mosaic patterns for the one-dimensional cellular neural networks with various boundary conditions. These patterns can be formed by combining the basic patterns. The parameter space is partitioned so that the existence of basic patterns can be determined for each parameter region. The mosaic patterns can then be completely characterized through formulating suitable transition matrices and boundary-pattern matrices. These matrices generate the patterns for the interior cells from the basic patterns and indicate the feasible patterns for the boundary cells. As an illustration, we elaborate on the cellular neural networks with a general 1 × 3 template. The exact number of mosaic patterns will be computed for the system with the Dirichlet, Neumann and periodic boundary conditions respectively. The idea in this study can be extended to other one-dimensional lattice systems with finite-range interaction.
