Are these sorts of period 3s common?

83bismuth38 discovered this one on March 5 of this year, and named it Runny Nose. Still-lifes and oscillators of low periods (e.g. 2 and 3) can often be formed by gluing together smaller pieces, so there tend to be a lot of them. This becomes more and more difficult as periods get larger. I'm not sure what you mean by "these sorts". If you mean "with high volatility" (e.g. lerge number of rotor cells compared to total cells), of the out of 782 period 3 oscillators up to 21 bits, only 36 have volatility of 1/2 or higher (i.e. less than 1 in 20).

Incidentally, Runny Nose has the highest volatility of all 21-bit P3 oscillators, and the 4th highest of all P3 oscillators up to 21 bits.

"Runny nose" That's a good name.

What I really meant was: Are period 3 oscillators of this size worth discovering and naming, or are there already billions of them?

Also is there some easy way to check if a pattern has already been discovered?

My web page (2 years out of date, but I hope to update it soon), which is at http://codercontest.com/mniemiec/lifepage.htm, shows lists of small objects and syntheses for most of them (except the largest lists). It has comprehensive lists up to 21 bits (18 for still-lifes) and some larger ones. Exhaustive computer searches have been performed for still-lifes and pseudo-still-lifes up to 32 bits, period 2 oscillators and pseudo-oscillators up to 21 bits, and period-3 oscillators and pseudo-oscillators up to 20 bits. Kayzan also just completed the 21 bit P3s, but I haven't had a chance to filter and evaluate those yet. My hand-generated list shows 422 of them. There are 3 closely-related new ones that he had just recently found and were posted here last week (I think) that aren't on my site. The number of still-lifes and period 2 oscillators appears to increase by a factor of around 2.4 for each additional bit, and period 3 oscillators appear to be similar. I would expect around a thousand 22-bit ones; not "billions" but certainly tedious to manage by hand. The vast majority of these oscillators are just stator variants of other existing ones, and very few that are worth special note or unique names. There are only around half a dozen 21-bit ones of note.

Note that I didn't get all of the 21-bit p3s, just the ones that fit within the same 10x40 box in all phases. For example, this 12x13 isn't in the results:

``````x = 12, y = 13, rule = B3/S23

After converting your list to my internal format and comparing it to my list (which includes all 3 generations of each pattern), all but 33 were found. Upon visual inspection, all of them appear to be patterns in my list, but some of their pattern images were not stored in the proper canonical format. When I create patterns, converting them to the proper internal representation is done automatically, but picking the correct orientation is done by hand, and I occasionally make mistakes. I have just written a tool that will go through my entire database and verify and/or fix the orientations of all patterns; I am currently in the process of fine tuning it.

Also, of all the oscillators in my list that exceed a 10x10 bounding box, without exception, all of them
are just stator variants of two eaters.

EDIT:
I just correlated the last 33 patterns against my own lists and all were accounted for. All but 5 showed up in the list of "files with incorrect canonical representations", but this is just a minor bookkeeping issue which I hope to resolve shortly.

How is this faster than c? (Especially since, by the very definition of c, any information transfer in any neighborhood is physically incapable of traveling faster than c).

It's a bit silly, I agree, but the sense in which it's true is that after m generations there is a copy of it translated by n cells, and n > m.

Only determine in which direction and how much speed (3C to the left or 4C to the right)?
Course transfer information at this speed no. In physics this is called the phase speed. At this speed can move only intangible point such as an intersection point knifes of Guillotines.

the reason it's runny nose is because I had a cold or something the day before. lol.
