I'm not sure who originally found it, or who originally synthesized it (unfortunately, I didn't keep a lot of detailed notes about such things at the time), but the pattern file in my collection is dated 2000-04-14, so the synthesis is at least that old. It has three syntheses, from 24, 28, and 34 gliders respectively.

Thanks everyone, I'll remember to check pattern collections before posting next time.

Edit: This reaction looks cheaper to synthesise, but I have no idea how to create the spark + glider:

And possible reductions to Octagon 4 and Jack::
What programs are good for finding syntheses of these small, unstable patterns?

...Except that's not new, and in fact was discussed on these forums only a few months ago.

### Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread

This is known and can be found in jslife in the 'osc' folder (downloadable from this page). You should check jslife if you want to know whether a pattern is already known. You should also check the osc-supplement collection available here.Entity Valkyrie wrote:ss this period 14 sparker known?

I discovered 5x5 plane oscillators with different periods:
I'm assuming that these are undiscovered, but I'm not sure. The p8 one probably is, and I'm sure the p12 can be used to make a similar wick.

Did you assume they were in a torus? They aren't. They're in a bounded grid, where cells outside are assumed to be state 0. You can make agars out of them, however:Redstoneboi wrote:Those are agars.

I haven't personally seen that oscillator before but I cannot imagine it being unknown because of its simplicity. I haven't checked in any lists yet.blah wrote:Oscillator

### Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread

Every such a bounded grid is isomorphic to a boundless grid with odd lines of symmetry in place of the grey lines, which is isomorphic to 2x2 reflected copies of the rectangle on a torus, which is isomorphic to an agar.blah wrote:Did you assume they were in a torus?

### Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread

They all have corresponding agars, but they themselves are not agars, which I think is what he was thinking.mniemiec wrote:Every such a bounded grid is isomorphic to a boundless grid with odd lines of symmetry in place of the grey lines, which is isomorphic to 2x2 reflected copies of the rectangle on a torus, which is isomorphic to an agar.

### Re: Oscillator Discussion Thread

Oh, my mistake, sorry. Thought they were in tori.

Probably because I wrote my own program that runs soups in small tori until stabilisation using a (probably inefficient) oscillation detection function.

I found 3*3 waves and stuff, though i lost the data by accident. rip.
