LifeWiki is a wiki designed with the hope of collecting all information about Conway's Game of Life together in one place. It contains a comprehensive catalogue of patterns as well as a glossary and general information about the game.

Purpose

In the past, Life patterns have been scattered around the internet on the home pages of various mathematicians, but surprisingly no single resource has been provided to consolidate all of this information – LifeWiki hopes fill this gap. LifeWiki's goal is to not only catalogue everything that is known about Conway's Game of Life, but also keep up-to-date as advances are made with the game and new important patterns are found.
