## The Hunting of the Elementary Conduits

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

### Re: The Hunting of the Elementary Conduits

What time is it?

Update time!

9 conduits added from this thread since 13 April--I haven't checked the rest of the forum. If there are other conduits worthy of inclusion, or errata in this update, please notify me.

### Re: The Hunting of the Elementary Conduits

You missed Simeks' RF48H variant:

It does provide an advantage over other R->Hs because it is the only conduit that can connect to BFx176R. gmc_nxtman Posts: 1147 Joined: May 26th, 2015, 7:20 pm ### Re: The Hunting of the Elementary Conduits Thanks, @gmc_nxtman! Here's an updated version, also with three more conduits. The former "RF48He" that was unusual was relocated and renamed "RF48Hf". The @simeks variant is now "RF48He".

The last one is a little bit weird.

Some of the glider-related labels have mutated beyond my ability to interpret them. I think I understand the negative numbers in "G-19G-17FxR" and so on, though those lane numbers are relative to the output R-pentomino, where other glider lane numbers are for output gliders, relative to the input object. I think I might rather just have "G2" as the input object in this name -- i.e., "G2FxR". Seems more readable, and the "G-19G-17" isn't really quite enough information to do anything useful with -- it wouldn't tell an automated circuit-builder script which glider has to come in first, or what relative timings are allowed. It's hard to define orientation relative to tandem gliders, though -- if it's an Fx then why not have the output R heading to the right? And offhand I can't figure out why the numbers aren't "G-18G-16", so maybe I'm interpreting them wrong. (?) Another random question: where does the "o" come from in GNEo_Snark? dvgrn Moderator Posts: 5825 Joined: May 17th, 2009, 11:00 pm Location: Madison, WI ### Re: The Hunting of the Elementary Conduits dvgrn wrote:-- so I cleaned those up and rebuilt the ZIP archive, which still had an August 2 folder hiding inside it anyway. Ahh, thanks. I was too lazy to rename the internal folder. dvgrn wrote:Some of the glider-related labels have mutated beyond my ability to interpret them. I think I understand the negative numbers in "G-19G-17FxR" and so on, though those lane numbers are relative to the output R-pentomino, where other glider lane numbers are for output gliders, relative to the input object. When I first expanded the nomenclature in November, I don't think I had much idea what to do with incoming gliders. The "timing+lane" method worked for outputs, so I decided to adapt glider lanes to the inputs, rejecting timing information as being too cumbersome. I arbitrarily defined the "forward" orientation of a glider to be SE-travelling with three of its cells in a horizontal line. In the "G-19G-17FxR" example, those orientations projected forward to a horizontal or vertical line of the forward-travelling R are 17 and 19 lanes away from the center of the output, as you figured out. The pseudo-mirror-image pair should indeed be "G16G18RR" under the current scheme, that is an error. Note that the ordering does matter somewhat--the first glider in each pattern displayed should delete a junk object/prepare the converter, and the second should create the output object. Failing that, the default is to assign more positive lane numbers to either input or output in case of multiple options. A degenerate case occurs with 90-degree G-G converters. There, the output lanes of the gliders are not fixed, but can be adjusted by two at a time, the constraint being glider color. Thus, the lane markings are "o" for odd lanes and "e" for even lanes. "GNEo" is thus an odd-lane (colour-preserving) 90-degree reflector. That being said, I do agree tandem glider inputs in the form "GxGy" should be shortened to "G(x-y)"--all of those seemed a little clunky, but as I said before, I didn't know enough about nomenclature back then.

### Re: The Hunting of the Elementary Conduits

I like this one, it allows to use H-to-P-to-W-to-H with repeat time under 74 (syringe standard), I think there was no way to do so with P or W before.

Here are a few other ways of dealing with that glider. First, with a regular eater5 or sidesnagger -- the sidesnagger can be adjusted SE by up to three cells, and an eater5 variant will fit as far down as 5 cells SEward, but it's nice to be able to get them out of the way to the NW. Maybe they can go a cell or two farther NW with the right weld:

If a dependent conduit follows the new improved Fx176 -- we have quite a few dependent conduits now, not just the old F166 or Lx200 choices -- then the dependent conduit's "first unnatural glider" can actually escape.

That wasn't true for the original Fx176, or A for awesome's original improvement. It can really make the Fx176 a lot more useful to have another optional signal output from the next conduit -- it was always a big annoyance not being able to get that glider out. So that's probably another new H-to-2G worth adding to the toolkit.

There's even enough room to fit a Snark in after an Lx200 turn, which might also come in handy:

SW-22 is such a backwards lane that the glider is usually going to dive right into the middle of the previous conduit and make a mess of the catalysts, though maybe there are a few interesting exceptions somewhere. There isn't enough room to allow a Snark to reflect the output glider, so a transparent lane would have be found -- or possibly a dirty conduit that happens to be cleanable with this particular glider, but the odds seem fairly low. The hypothetical dirty conduit would have to make something interesting, since otherwise the whole conglomeration will just be a big slow inefficient Herschel eater. So... what else am I missing, that this R-to-G might usefully connect to?

Updated with the last year's new elementary conduits (and semi-cenarks, which I think are elementary enough to be included as G0-to-Gs rather than as a G0-to-C).

What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!
