Is this the smallest p5 rotor (4 cells)? x = 3, y = 3, rule = 23/4/5 .A$A.A$.A! You are probably asking about the smallest p5 rotor in a two-state, isotropic, non-totalistic rule. Obviously, p5 rotors in those rules cannot have 1 or 2 cells. The three cell case is harder to prove. For a three cell ...

Is there any fundamental limit on how slow something can grow?
For example, would it be possible to create something that grows slower than the inverse Graham's Function?

If you run the attached pattern with the speed set to 2^8 (change the base step) and pressing "tab" repeatedly instead of running it, you will see that the wiggly lines clear up in the first few thousand generations, leaving two active boundaries. The topmost boundary would evolve for a while, but a...

Re: Is this oscillator known

The p6 is trivial, an oscillator must have at least one cell that oscillates at the full period to be non-trivial, your p6 has 10 p2 cells and 3 p3 cells.
Your p3s are stillaters with different stators.
