The initial version of this glossary entry is based on information gleaned from David Eppstein's glider DB pages, e.g. http://fano.ics.uci.edu/ca/rules/b356s014678/ .
Unfortunately this entry only explains how to compute equivalent strobing rules, but fails to discuss what they are, why they are important, or why they are called "strobing rules". It would be nice if someone more knowledgeable could fill this in. Apple Bottom (talk) 21:26, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
