Trans-loaf with tail is an 11-cell still life.

This still life is comprised of the normally stable loaf with a normally unstable tail attached. This is one of two possible isomers, named trans due to most of the loaf facing outwards from the tail; the other isomer, cis-loaf with tail, has it tucked inwards.


Trans-loaf with tail is the forty-ninth most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than block on cap but more common than cis-rotated bookend.[1] It is also the fifty-ninth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.[2]

Glider synthesis

All strict still lifes with a population of 20 or fewer cells, as well as all oscillators and spaceships with 16 or fewer cells, are known to be glider-constructible. A glider synthesis of this object can be found in the infobox to the right.
