I wonder whether an 8 x 8 B3/S23 torus can be or has been fully (exhaustively) explored (2^64 is a pretty large number for a brute-force approach, even if discounting all symmetries). If somebody can point me to software particularly suited for torus exploration (incl. oscillator detection), I would be very grateful.
Yes, you are probably right. But 7x7 is definitely within reach.dvgrn wrote:Macbi wrote:We've exhaustively explored 6x6 starting configurations on an infinite grid, so doing all 6x6 tori should be possible.

Yikes. I think the jump from 6x6 to 8x8 is an awfully big one. If 8x8 is possible, then someone should prove it by doing an exhaustive search on 7x7, which is 2^15 times easier than 8x8... and about eight thousand (2^13) times harder than 6x6, which is as big as we've gone so far.

Macbi wrote:Also, since 7x7 and 8x8 tori contain less than 64 cells we can probably do some intricate bit-twiddling to compute each generation a bit faster.
That should get us up to 7x7. To get up to 8x8 I think we would have to do something cleverer than brute force, like perhaps keeping a hash table of some of the generations previously visited.

For circular strings there's an algorithm for generating only the canonical forms: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyndon_word. Perhaps this could be adapted to the toroidal case (forgetting about the reflections)? Alternatively we could look at tori which wrap with an offset of 1, so that all the cells are in one long spiral path.dvgrn wrote:The same might even be true of rotations/reflections/translations, unless there's a really quick way of enumerating only the unique 7x7 tori.
