This work investigates three-dimensional pattern generation problems and their applications to three-dimensional Cellular Neural Networks (3DCNN). An ordering matrix for the set of all local patterns is established to derive a recursive formula for the ordering matrix of a larger finite lattice. For a given admissible set of local patterns, the transition matrix is defined and the recursive formula of high order transition matrix is presented. Then, the spatial entropy is obtained by computing the maximum eigenvalues of a sequence of transition matrices. The connecting operators are used to verify the positivity of the spatial entropy, which is important in determining the complexity of the set of admissible global patterns. The results are useful in studying a set of global stationary solutions in various Lattice Dynamical Systems and Cellular Neural Networks.
