Re: Synthesising Oscillators

Is this a proper synthesis of http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/26P40?

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

I am trying to list all important methuselahs below 10 bits. (Unfortunately, I've been somewhat mind-bogglingly slow in updating my site, but things are starting to come together, it shouldn't be that much longer.) Is there a list of all (small) methuselahs? I know the wiki list (http://www.conwayl...

Re: Enumerating Three-Glider Collisions

I am still looking for a good way to classify and tabulating the collisions. Especially the mentioned problem with the infinite sets, e.g. x = 129, y = 35, rule = B3/S23 17bo45bo30bo31bo$18bo45bo30bo31bo$16b3o43b3o28b3o29b3o3$17b3o43b3o28b 3o29b3o$19bo45bo30bo31bo$18bo45bo30bo31bo19$bo$b2o$obo44bo$4...

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

the third will not definitely (I have actually already found some collisions for the third, but none of them are compatible with the copperhead synthesis). For this I have found these four different options: x = 10, y = 9, rule = B3/S23 7bo$8bo$6b3o3$8bo$3o4b2o$2bo4bobo$bo! x = 7, y = 14, rule = B3...

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

Does anything happen to have the ash signature of this part of a loafer recipe? If I got it correctly the relevant part of the 5 glider reaction is x = 9, y = 4, rule = B3/S23 b2o4b2o$o2b2ob3o$bobo$2bo! I looked for the resulting ash (including symmetries) in my 3G collision files, but the result i...

Re: Enumerating Three-Glider Collisions

After my post of a few 3glider collisions (3GCs) I am writing my thoughts to the enumeration of all 3 glider collisions. And of course one of the main challenges is the definition of a 3 glider collision. It is a not just a pattern containing three gliders... To start simple, 3GC must have arbitrary...

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

I know of one different 3-glider synthesis for Thunderbird, found by Extrementhusiast on 2015-07-04. I am working on the enumeration of all 3G reactions, and I got all the results by looking at the ashes. The mentioned reactions are only representatives, for some there are multiple options. For the...

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

I studied a bit the collision between of a glider and a blinker. In most of all constellations all cells disappear. However, similarly as for glider-glider collisions other outputs are possible. This is: - block - blinker - traffic light - ship - loaf - pond such as three Methuselah: - #1 a house (w...

A pure glider generator

Hi, I found an interesting pattern that is a pure glider generator, in fact it produces two gliders. I am not sure if it is new, but it is not listed at: http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/Pure_glider_generator It contains 14 cells on a 3x13 box and generates two gliders at generation 30. In the wiki it...

Re: Massive spam attacks on the wiki (and forums?)

Hi,
I would like to be added to the trusted user list so that I can edit the Wiki.
Do I have to do something special to become trusted?
