24P10 is a period10 oscillator discovered by Matthias Merzenich on November 12, 2010.^{[1]} In terms of its minimum population of 24 cells, it is currently the smallest known nontrivial period 10 oscillator, although the trivial bipole tie pseudobarberpole contains only 23 cells.^{[2]}
It first appeared seminaturally on October 17, 2018, in a symmetric soup submitted to Catagolue by carybe.^{[3]} Later on November 9, 2018, Martin Grant found a 15glider synthesis of the oscillator.^{[4]} On April 18, 2023, a 10glider synthesis was discovered, with help from QuFince.^{[5]}^{[6]}
It can be occasionally be used in LCM oscillators; one example is the smallest known period50 oscillator, 24P10 on 30P25.
