David Hilbert[1][note 1] (or 122P23) was the first period-23 oscillator to be discovered. It was found by Luka Okanishi on November 24, 2019[2] based on a partial result by Aidan F. Pierce.[1] It consists of two copies of an engine, itself consisting of a B-heptomino being hassled by two unusual catalysts and a block, supported by a known period-agnostic beehive shuttle mechanism (seen in, for example, an extension of the carnival shuttle). There are several isomers known (including trans- versions and different phase offsets), with the one pictured having minimum population and bounding box.


  1. Named after German mathematician David Hilbert in reference to his 23 problems.
