Nick Gotts is a Life enthusiast who is known for developing several very small (by cell count) patterns that exhibit quadratic growth. The previous record-holder for the smallest such pattern is his 26-cell quadratic growth pattern. He also has investigated how complexity can emerge from sparse random soup.
