This is a list of the most common oscillators in the Game of Life, specifically Catagolue's B3/S23/C1 census. The minimum known glider synthesis, as of April 2020, of each oscillator is also displayed. The approximate relative frequency column gives an estimate of the proportion of all randomly-occurring oscillators that will be of the given type. Proper names for objects are taken from Catagolue where applicable; the apgcode of the object is substituted otherwise.
