Population should be minimal, but bounding box isn't.

Never got word back on my 42-cell solution, so I'll go ahead and post this:

So sorry about that, I completely missed your edit. Is there some secret trick that I don't know about to be notified of edits to posts?

Anyway, I'm not 100% sure that 42 is optimal, given that I haven't verified with a search program, but it's the smallest I've been able to get:
x = 12, y = 12, rule = LifeHistory
4.AC$5.A$3.C2.AC$3.AC.C$.CA2.C2.A$C2.A2.CACAC$.C2.AC5.C$2.CA3.A2.CA$
4.A.AC$4.C.C$.CA.A.A$.AC.CA!

I'm surprised no one found my solution, as the "diagonalistic" nature of the puzzle should have been an obvious clue.
x₁=ηx
V ⃰_η=c²√(Λη)
K=(Λu²)/2
Pₐ=1−1/(∫^∞_t₀(p(t)ˡ⁽ᵗ⁾)dt)

$$x_1=\eta x$$
$$V^*_\eta=c^2\sqrt{\Lambda\eta}$$
$$K=\frac{\Lambda u^2}2$$
$$P_a=1-\frac1{\int^\infty_{t_0}p(t)^{l(t)}dt}$$

Ahem, anyway, I've never created one of these, but here we go, an easy-but-kinda-tricky one:
x = 9, y = 11, rule = B3/S23
2o$obo2$2bobobo$5bobo$7b2o2$7bo2$6bo$4bo!

My lowest is 47 cells, but I'm a novice, so it can probably be reduced.

This puzzle is impossible. There is no way to stabilise the centre cell (in red below) without causing one of it's neighbours to die. I suggest you at least create a solution yourself before posting another puzzle

Fairly certain 34 is optimal, so you get to submit a puzzle.
