### Re: Soup search results

A common method of reducing glider syntheses is by using 3 glider collisions to synthesize a constellation. I've made a script that should make this a lot easier for people. However it is in python, which I know several people have been unable to get to work with Golly. This method can still work if you have some method of determining an apgcode for a constellation outside of python.

Here's the script. The apgcode-determining part is borrowed from apgsearch. Select a constellation (of 20 cells or less) and run it. The script should output a pattern with all the collisions it knows, or tell you that it could not find any:

Code: Select all

import golly as g
g.setrule("B3/S23")

offset = 0
with open("consts.txt","r") as fl:
with open("cols.txt","r") as fl:
i = 0
for i in range(0,len(cols)):
cols[i] = cols[i].split(", ")

def bijoscar(maxsteps):

initpop = int(g.getpop())
initrect = g.getrect()
if (len(initrect) == 0):
return 0
inithash = g.hash(initrect)

for i in xrange(maxsteps):

g.run(1)

if (int(g.getpop()) == initpop):

prect = g.getrect()
phash = g.hash(prect)

if (phash == inithash):

period = i + 1

if (prect == initrect):
return period
else:
return -period
return -1

def canonise():

p = bijoscar(4)

representation = "#"
for i in range(abs(p)):
rect = g.getrect()
representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[2], rect[3], rect[0], rect[1], 1, 0, 0, 1))
representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[2], rect[3], rect[0]+rect[2]-1, rect[1], -1, 0, 0, 1))
representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[2], rect[3], rect[0], rect[1]+rect[3]-1, 1, 0, 0, -1))
representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[2], rect[3], rect[0]+rect[2]-1, rect[1]+rect[3]-1, -1, 0, 0, -1))
representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[3], rect[2], rect[0], rect[1], 0, 1, 1, 0))
representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[3], rect[2], rect[0]+rect[2]-1, rect[1], 0, -1, 1, 0))
representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[3], rect[2], rect[0], rect[1]+rect[3]-1, 0, 1, -1, 0))
representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[3], rect[2], rect[0]+rect[2]-1, rect[1]+rect[3]-1, 0, -1, -1, 0))
g.run(1)

if (p<0):
prefix = "q"+str(abs(p))
elif (p==1):
prefix = "s"+str(g.getpop())
else:
prefix = "p"+str(p)

return "x"+prefix+"_"+representation

# A subroutine used by canonise:
def canonise_orientation(length, breadth, ox, oy, a, b, c, d):

representation = ""

chars = "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"

zeroes = 0
if (v != 0):
representation += "z"
for u in xrange(length):
baudot = 0
for w in xrange(5):
x = ox + a*u + b*(5*v + w)
y = oy + c*u + d*(5*v + w)
baudot = (baudot >> 1) + 16*g.getcell(x, y)
if (baudot == 0):
zeroes += 1
else:
if (zeroes > 0):
if (zeroes == 1):
representation += "0"
elif (zeroes == 2):
representation += "w"
elif (zeroes == 3):
representation += "x"
else:
representation += "y"
representation += chars[zeroes - 4]
zeroes = 0
representation += chars[baudot]
return representation

# Compares strings first by length, then by lexicographical ordering.
# A hash character is worse than anything else.
def compare_representations(a, b):

if (a == "#"):
return b
elif (b == "#"):
return a
elif (len(a) < len(b)):
return a
elif (len(b) < len(a)):
return b
elif (a < b):
return a
else:
return b

pattern = canonise()
if pattern in consts:
g.clear(1)
g.clear(0)
g.setgen("0")
loc = consts.index(pattern)
g.show(str(len(cols[loc])) + " collisions found")
g.setname(pattern)
for e in cols[loc]:
g.putcells(g.parse(e),offset,0)
offset += 50
else:
g.note("No 3 glider collision found for that constellation. Better luck next time")
It relies on two text files which store all the collisions. The text files and the above program are attached here:
synthesise_constellation.zip
For example, here's the output for one of the blinker-boat constellations in Extrementhusiast's above post. It runs almost instantaneously:

Code: Select all

x = 267, y = 16, rule = B3/S23
10bo49bo49bo49bo50bo53bo$10bobo47bobo46bo49bo50bo53bo$10b2o48b2o47b3o

As you can see, it contains a few duplicates. This is because the collisions originally come from an gencols search, so there are probably also quite a few collisions missing. However, it seems to be good enough for most purposes. Edit: In case somebody wants to modify/improve it, here's the script that was used to generate the text files. It reads from a gencols output file: Code: Select all import golly as g g.setrule("Life") FILENAME = "C:/cygwin64/home/Dary Fitrady/gencols/3g.col" MAX_GENS = 256 MAX_POP = 20 count=0 consts = [] cols = [] def bijoscar(maxsteps): initpop = int(g.getpop()) initrect = g.getrect() if (len(initrect) == 0): return 0 inithash = g.hash(initrect) for i in xrange(maxsteps): g.run(1) if (int(g.getpop()) == initpop): prect = g.getrect() phash = g.hash(prect) if (phash == inithash): period = i + 1 if (prect == initrect): return period else: return -period return -1 def canonise(): p = bijoscar(4) representation = "#" for i in range(abs(p)): rect = g.getrect() representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[2], rect[3], rect[0], rect[1], 1, 0, 0, 1)) representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[2], rect[3], rect[0]+rect[2]-1, rect[1], -1, 0, 0, 1)) representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[2], rect[3], rect[0], rect[1]+rect[3]-1, 1, 0, 0, -1)) representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[2], rect[3], rect[0]+rect[2]-1, rect[1]+rect[3]-1, -1, 0, 0, -1)) representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[3], rect[2], rect[0], rect[1], 0, 1, 1, 0)) representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[3], rect[2], rect[0]+rect[2]-1, rect[1], 0, -1, 1, 0)) representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[3], rect[2], rect[0], rect[1]+rect[3]-1, 0, 1, -1, 0)) representation = compare_representations(representation, canonise_orientation(rect[3], rect[2], rect[0]+rect[2]-1, rect[1]+rect[3]-1, 0, -1, -1, 0)) g.run(1) if (p<0): prefix = "q"+str(abs(p)) elif (p==1): prefix = "s"+str(g.getpop()) else: prefix = "p"+str(p) return "x"+prefix+"_"+representation # A subroutine used by canonise: def canonise_orientation(length, breadth, ox, oy, a, b, c, d): representation = "" chars = "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" for v in xrange(int((breadth-1)/5)+1): zeroes = 0 if (v != 0): representation += "z" for u in xrange(length): baudot = 0 for w in xrange(5): x = ox + a*u + b*(5*v + w) y = oy + c*u + d*(5*v + w) baudot = (baudot >> 1) + 16*g.getcell(x, y) if (baudot == 0): zeroes += 1 else: if (zeroes > 0): if (zeroes == 1): representation += "0" elif (zeroes == 2): representation += "w" elif (zeroes == 3): representation += "x" else: representation += "y" representation += chars[zeroes - 4] zeroes = 0 representation += chars[baudot] return representation # Compares strings first by length, then by lexicographical ordering. # A hash character is worse than anything else. def compare_representations(a, b): if (a == "#"): return b elif (b == "#"): return a elif (len(a) < len(b)): return a elif (len(b) < len(a)): return b elif (a < b): return a else: return b for s in open(FILENAME): count+=1 #if count%100==0: #g.show(str(count)) g.new("Pattern "+str(count)) rle = s.replace('!','$').replace('.','b').replace('*','o')[:-1]+'!'

This will be good to have. Do you happen to have the specific calls you used to create the gencols output?

Seems like it might be a good idea to adapt the search to use 2718281828's three-glider collision collection. Haven't looked yet to see if something has to be done to handle different orientations of the same constellation.

In the long run it would be nice to have a lookup system that can find every instance of a particular spark or other active reaction among the three-glider collisions, with or without additional junk off to the side -- or even, every instance of an active reaction where the history envelope doesn't touch some user-specified forbidden zone. But that's going to take quite a bit more indexing work, or it will be a much slower search. The popseq program that chris_c posted several years ago doesn't allow for dying sparks off to the side -- or at least you'd have to do several searches.

Haven't looked yet to see if something has to be done to handle different orientations of the same constellation. I ran the gencols search way back in 2016, but I suspect it was something very similar to what chris_c wrote here. I followed your idea of using 2718281828's collection to improve the script: synthesise_constellation-ee9.zip (473.4 KiB) Downloaded 304 times It took several hours to run because 2718281828's collision collection contained quite a lot more syntheses then my gencols-generated ones (460000 vs 76000). However, the script has quite a lot more collisions in its database now. For example, it used to not be able to find any collisions for the following constellation, but now it finds eight: Code: Select all x = 360, y = 29, rule = B3/S23 6bo43bo51bo48bo49bo49bo7bo54bo42bo$7b2o42b2o47bobo49bo49bo48b2o7bo54b

I'm not so sure. Running the script as it is on a honey farm gives no results (as expected by your comment), but I didn't see an obvious check for constellation size, and manually adding the honey farm to the list creates an IndexError on line 125. (Also, the script fails at line 121 if there is no selection when starting the script, regardless of constellation size.)

(This sequence of posts is likely a better fit in the Enumerating Three-Glider Collisions thread.)

I'm not so sure. Running the script as it is on a honey farm gives no results (as expected by your comment), but I didn't see an obvious check for constellation size, and manually adding the honey farm to the list creates an IndexError on line 125. (Also, the script fails at line 121 if there is no selection when starting the script, regardless of constellation size.)
The limit on constellation size comes from the script which generates the database in the post at the top of this page: http://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic. ... 539#p65539
line 6: MAX_POP = 20

27x27 soup, density = 1/3. A 28-bit still life pops up.

Code: Select all

x = 27, y = 27, rule = B3/S23

No. A soup is a "random initial pattern", so these two patterns are badly misadvertised. Unless Entity Valkyrie can provide the random number generator and starting seed used to create these patterns, it might have been better to post them on some other thread, and/or wait four months and a week before posting.

They don't? Strange, it's still working for me --- mind, I'm running the current bleeding-edge version, whereas everyone else only gets what Opera has gotten around to approving. There's two updates pending, and the previous one was left unreviewed by the add-on moderators for five months. But I digress...

In any case the haul's here, submitted just earlier today. Thanks for noticing, I totally missed this myself.
