It is novel but an eater1 can fit within it with almost exactly the same effect:

This one is interesting but it can also be reduced to something simpler, namely already known R->B converter and an Eater1. It doesn't exactly fit within its footprint, though:

That has to be the most useless accidental discovery I have ever seen. Why use an exotic palladium catalyst when you can just use THF and NaOH?

Because if you didn't discover it with palladium, you wouldn't ever know that you can do it also using THF and NaOH.

Yes, I think that destroying R using single eater is likely to be already known. I'm not so sure about the other reaction though. It may be actually new.

Personally I tend to agree. I've thrown away a lot of patterns like these in the past. However Sokwe mentioned that he'd like to see reactions like this, so I decided to start posting them.

Do we need a "Thread For Your Useless Discoveries"?

I was mostly concerned with catalysts that could be useful in ptbsearch. I previously thought that these novel catalysts were still somewhat uncommon, but after playing around with Bellman I found that I was quite mistaken. I am now more concerned with catalysts that only react with the active pattern for a short time (the catalyst may take a while to recover, but the active pattern must "move away" from the catalyst). I posted some ramblings on this here. I'm not sure how useful those two new catalysts are, but it is worth noting that they do not use precisely the same reaction as the spartan alternatives:

For surprisingly long time this group destroys any debris it produces while moving slightly. The rle shows development in 168 generations. At gen 178 it produces a loaf (which can be destroyed by a block) but then it quickly decays. Maybe some perturbation can force it back to original form?

x = 23, y = 26, rule = LifeHistory

Great find! This is very useful for building high-period, low-diameter oscillators like the ones described in my paper with Buckingham "Tight Bounds on Periodic Cell Configurations in Life":
http://projecteuclid.org/DPubS/Reposito ... 1047674205

This took me a few hours to put together and it's a lot more elegant than the one I used when writing the paper (some explanation follows the pattern). Here is a period-16966 glider gun that can be set to have any period 19110-536n for n=1,2, ..., 16 by sending a stream of n gliders.

The idea is to build a variable-period oscillator based on n-bit counters. The period grows exponentially with the number of counter bits, so it is more compact than an oscillator based on path distances. It uses a gun based on all still-life components that can be triggered by a glider, but this gun also has an n-bit counter and stops itself after producing 2^n gliders. In addition, it sends the output gliders into another n-bit counter with a preset state m (1<=m<=2^n) such that it absorbs all 2^n gliders but outputs a single glider after step m, and also restores the counter to its original state.

Putting these together, you get a reflector that outputs a glider after a+b*m steps for some constants a, b and has a something like a b*2^n recovery time. You can bounce a glider between two reflectors like this, as long as the second reflector gives the first reflector sufficient recovery time. This makes it possible to realize all oscillator periods c+b*(2^n + m) for some constants b and c.

After building this oscillator (for n=4) i realized that it could not only be triggered by a glider from outside, but its period could actually be adjusted just by sending a different number of gliders. In this example, it receives a series of 4 initial gliders and has period 16966. It can be triggered with n = 1 to 16 gliders, and will have period 19110-536n. The reason is that the gliders are sent through one of the 4-bit counters (base on semi-snarks). It is preset to all 1s so that the first glider causes the bits to reset and outputs a glider. Subsequent gliders will increment the state of the
counter, reducing the oscillator period.

More than 16 gliders introduces a second glider in the reflector shuttle, which eventually destroys the pattern. It is possible to stop the gun, restoring its initial state, using a synchronized glider/glider collision in a several different places. After that, it can be reset to any other oscillator period by sending the appropriate number of gliders.

Code: Select all

x = 19, y = 23, rule = B3/S23

It's an LWSS-activated glider eater! Two gliders in the same lane can also activate it:

Code: Select all

x = 22, y = 23, rule = B3/S23

(It was stripped down to its necessary parts here.)

15-glider synthesis of a variant:

On a different note, this pattern makes two fairly-closely-spaced gliders:

Code: Select all

x = 7, y = 13, rule = B3/S23

Stable knight move:

Code: Select all

x = 16, y = 11, rule = B3/S23

Found the other ways with "Seeds of Destruction" Java program in a few minutes. An excellent tool.
This one is a highway robber reaction, though.

Can anybody stabilise this true-period 34 agar?
