Re: Agar crawlers

Great! By now we should be able to more generally construct 2c/n corners. The edges consist of interleaved classical 2c/3 half signals in the right angle to match the given speed. The corner construction itself then is always the same and one just needs to align the phase of the edges. It should be ...

Re: Agar crawlers

I had been running the next size up in 2c/5 parallel greyship edges, but there's just so much crud to pick through and I'm not sure we're interesting in a few more random edges. One interesting thing I noticed in a partial was there's a very small "seam" between parallel and perpendicular at 2c/5 a...

To add my 50 cents: In former times, when David Bell wrote his articles on low period searches, we did the polishing via mailing list, but most of the work was done by David. Then we had the research on the caterpillar and Gabriel Nivasch‘s article on signals and agar crawlers. Of course, most topic...

Glide symmetric searches don‘t really halve the number of generations! Only near the axis this poses additional restrictions on the pattern evolution as does ordinary symmetry. Farther away from the axes the search actually is just divided in two Distinct areas with half the number of generations. T...
