## Soup search results

For discussion of specific patterns or specific families of patterns, both newly-discovered and well-known.

### Re: Soup search results

This soup, in addition to producing a rare p30, also contains a reaction in which a glider+block delay a QB 12 ticks, shifting the block by three cells to cap the QB into a half-shuttle:
x = 16, y = 32, rule = B3/S23

Unfortunately for the prospect of creating p42/72 gun-supported oscillators, I don't believe the glider can be placed in front of the QB if the QB is present flipped 15 ticks earlier. Could p54 potentially be achievable? x₁=ηx V ⃰_η=c²√(Λη) K=(Λu²)/2 Pₐ=1−1/(∫^∞_t₀(p(t)ˡ⁽ᵗ⁾)dt) $$x_1=\eta x$$ $$V^*_\eta=c^2\sqrt{\Lambda\eta}$$ $$K=\frac{\Lambda u^2}2$$ $$P_a=1-\frac1{\int^\infty_{t_0}p(t)^{l(t)}dt}$$ http://conwaylife.com/wiki/A_for_all Aidan F.

Generation 37 shows a simple synthesis of the bottom piece (domino + forming PI heptomino). The cauterizing lower block can be replaced by a glider. Since the pi+domino just form the W constellation (Ship+2 blocks+2 blinkers), the whole bottom can be replaced by 4 gliders.

Generation 23 also seems seems easy: cauterizing block (replaced by glider) from SW, forming honeyfarm from NW, forming R pentomino from NE, and 6-bit J thing in the middle. The R pentomino is apparent at generation 30. One additional glider from the NW cleans up all the southern junk.

I still have a few ideas about how to make B3/S23 even faster by reducing the instruction count in the iterator. On the subject of speed improvements, 4.4 is still slower than 3.28 for me, or so it seems --- the (admittedly extremely unscientific) experiment of letting 4.4 run for a while, concurrently with 3.28, and compare the speeds, yielded about 1270 soups per (second times HT core) for 4.4, versus about 1370 for 3.28. This was in C4_4, in case that may have made a difference (I doubt it should have though). I think I also accidently knocked off a zero from the 4.4 haul size, but even at 1 million soups per haul rather than 10 I expected the numbers to be closer to 3.28's... FWIW my computer doesn't support the newer instruction sets (AVX1 is the most it'll do). I'll happily test upcoming, new-and-improved!!! versions of 4.x though. (Alternatively I'll be happy to help diagnose what the reason for 4.x not having caught up on my computer might be.) calcyman wrote:I'm also currently working on the cryptocurrency implementation, where blocks are mined by finding rare objects* in b3s23/C1 soups.

### Re: Soup search results

I run some gutter searches in B3/S23, mainly in D4_+1 and D8_1. The results are not amazing, but interesting. Of course much more gutter-based oscillators were found. I have the feeling that this is the case for oscillators which have a longer rotor (and usually large periods).

For instance there is this twin bee shuttle which appear (at the moment) 29times, but only once in standard D4+1:
x = 11, y = 55, rule = B3/S23
b2o5b2o$b2o5b2o16$2obo3bob2o$o2bo3bo2bo$b3o3b3o16$b3o3b3o$o2bo3bo2bo$2obo3bob 2o16$b2o5b2o$b2o5b2o! (https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp ... y1oo/b3s23) In D4+1 we have about 2831billion objects, in my gutter D4+1 about 7.4billion. This makes the mentioned pattern about 11000 times more common in the gutter search. This makes me feel confident to continue on gutter searches. This is a similar one: x = 11, y = 55, rule = B3/S23 2b2o3b2o$2bobobobo$4bobo$3b2ob2o14$2obo3bob2o$o2bo3bo2bo$b3o3b3o16$b3o3b3o$o 2bo3bo2bo$2obo3bob2o14$3b2ob2o$4bobo$2bobobobo$2b2o3b2o!
(https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp ... 0eio/b3s23)
it appeared a few times in the gutter search but nowhere else.

In D8_1 there is for instance this non-trivial queen bee shuttle interaction with circular beacon on beacon on beacon on beacon (likely known as well, even though not listed in jslife):
x = 47, y = 47, rule = B3/S23

### Re: Soup search results

I feel like that's more interesting than you give it credit, as the long-hook on ship stays intact for a looong time before the quadpole conversion happens, which I like.

EDIT: Oh, also, my friend (matthew on the discord) has a hundred million-or-so-soup haul running since he's without wifi.

EDIT2: Never mind Windows decided to update

### Re: Soup search results

How is this not major? I'd say this is a great component! It's a racetrack, actually:
x = 17, y = 15, rule = B3/S23

Life is hard. Deal with it.
My favorite oscillator of all time:
x = 7, y = 5, rule = B3/S2-i3-y4i

### Re: Soup search results

Turning a ship into a quadpole via the 6-cell bookend predecessor (see gen 18 ) has been the way to do it for quite some time now.
