Max is a spacefiller that was found by Tim Coe^{[1]} in October 1995 that fills the plane with zebra stripes. In terms of its 187 cells, it is tied with spacefiller 2 as the smallest known spacefiller, and in terms of its 27×27 bounding box it wins outright.^{[2]}
Alternatively, the term Max may be used to describe whatever the smallestknown spacefiller is at the current time. The term represents the fact that the growth rate is the fastest possible of any pattern in Conway's Game of Life.^{[3]}^{[4]}
