Re: Project LambdaCAlculus

So, now that we've gotten the introductions out of the way, let's look at how the Cellular Automaton will work. Our goal is for the rule to take in a 2-state lambda calculus diagram such as this one: x = 15, y = 6, rule = B/S012345678 7ob7o$bo3bo3bo3bo$b5o3b5o$bo7bo$b9o$bo! And repeatedly evaluate i...

Re: Project LambdaCAlculus

So, enough with the abstract. How do we write lambdas in CA? Diagrams. How do lambda diagrams work? Well, you have bars . They represent abstractions/functions/lambdas. x = 11, y = 1, rule = B/S012345678 11o! This represents "(λn.)" Then, you have stems that come down from bars. They represent binds...

We're collaborating to create a rule to simulate Lambda Calculus Diagrams. First of all, what is "Lambda Calculus"?

Re: Stuck: A squishy photon rule.

Is this a way to make this not get stuck without breaking the rule 1. You're probably using the rule wrong if you ended up like that. 2. I don't think there's a way for the stuck photon to tell between that and this: x = 8, y = 8, rule = Stuck .C$.B2$.C$.B2$BC.BC.BC$.B! And the spaces can't tell be...
