Search for fast signals

Postby simsim314 » April 15th, 2019, 5:21 pm

In CGOL we usually pass information inside gliders or *WSSs, this is wireless communication which works. But if we ever would like to break the c/2 speed limit at least for complex computations, we would like to have some sort of signal propagation environment and signal inside it with logical operations. The environment could be stable or not and while most of the modern search tools for higher than c/2 speed are assuming stability in reality the same search can be done inside agars and wicks. While the best case scenario of this thread would be finding speed of light signal with simplistic logical operation gates junctions, and stable SLs, I guess in reality we would be lucky to be better than c/2 inside any agar. While we need some luck, the project aims to:

1. Promote research and ideas on the topic.

2. Collect all the existing directions on the topic from several sources and prepare some equivalent to Conduits circuitry report. It would be nice to know at which stage each agar/wick currently is (needs stabilisation, needs turner, needs signal, needs logical operations gate for the signal).

3. Preparing search tools or modify the existing tools (like dr) to work with oscillators.

The aim is to make a package of tools from agar search, to signal inside agar search, to signal logical operations search all inside the same workflow. i.e. bring all the different branches of the research together.

I hope the user would see the bigger picture based on this example:

x = 166, y = 153, rule = B3/S23

What about Lightspeed Wire in Zebra-stripe? Are there any LW->G or G->LWyet?
Plz correct my grammar mistakes. I'm still studying English.

Working on:

* Rule Y Orthogonoid

Favorite gun ever:
#C Favorite Gun. Found by me.
x = 4, y = 6, rule = B2e3i4at/S1c23cijn4a

I tried several experiments with that, they either blow up the coating stabilization or blow up the wire. Orthogonal lines are too fragile.

Aren't there the diagonal c-speed tub signals? Those (technically) travel at 2c and can both be easily sent and received.

(due to Gabriel Nivasch) which goes at c but not on a stretched tub.

Those (technically) travel at 2c
I know what you mean, but the way we measure speed means that we would say they had speed c. We use the l_∞ metric rather than the l_0 metric. (This makes sense since the lightspeed limit can be phrased most nicely in the l_∞ metric, it's precisely c. What makes things a bit confusing is that the empty space limit can be phrased nicely in the l_0 metric; it's precisely c/2. Working in the l_∞ metric the empty space limit depends on the direction. A ship that travels in the (m,n) direction can travel at speed at most max(m,n)c/(2m + 2n).)

can both be easily sent and received.
This isn't true for Gabriel Nivasch's signal above. As far as I know we don't have any simple lightspeed diagonal wires, although we could construct a complicated one. It would consist of a one cell thick diagonal line that could be burnt as a one-time signal, along with machinery to the side of it that noticed when a signal went past and replaced the wire.

Yes I'm seeking for everything regarding signals inside any environment. My current collection is very partial. Please commit the patterns and pattern collections or link to them (for example Jason's wicks are in 50 .lif files - so someone needs to collect them all into a single file and add them to non-stable wicks).

Spaceships inside static Agar are less relevant here - as they're not proper signal candidates. But gliders and other small signals are also of interest. As well as collisions between them which preserve the agar or at least something like wire crossing. The point is to document systematically the state of the research regarding small signals of any kind in any non empty environment preferably faster than c/2.

@Macbi - thx I've updated the collection with your patterns. Please post more of this sort.

There's a relatively straightforward way to build a lightspeed diagonal signal, but the recovery time is quite poor. In particular, the following fuse burns at c diagonally, and a nearby block can liberate a signal:

x = 139, y = 142, rule = B3/S23

By using some Herschel plumbing and a constructor arm, this could be coaxed into rebuilding a nearby section of the wire (of length greater than the diagonal space occupied by the circuitry). Then, you can simply take that unit and repeat it diagonally to create a long stable lightspeed diagonal wire with a fixed constant recovery time.
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

My main issue is not the recovery time but the size of the conduit which requires the wires to be spaced far apart from each other - which is basically hurting the point of compact fast computers.

Anyway I've added everything mentioned (didn't add transmitters and also the blinker wires need more work).
