R-pentomino neutronium

Post by turnip » March 10th, 2014, 9:34 am

I created a rule I called Neutronium, which is CGOL plus a third state, which is created when a live cell is surrounded by 8 live cells. Rather than dying, it turns into neutronium, which is considered live, and never dies:

Code: Select all

@RULE Neutronium
@TABLE
n_states:3
neighborhood:Moore
symmetries:permute
var a={1,2}
var b={1,2}
var c={1,2}
var d={1,2}
var e={1,2}
var f={1,2}
var g={1,2}
var h={1,2}

1,a,b,c,d,e,f,0,0,0
1,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,0,0

@COLORS
0 48 48 48
1 255 255 255
2 255 0 0
I ran all the pentominos through it. Most of them (not surprisingly) behaved exactly as they do in CGOL, with the exception of the I pentomino, which turns into the following in two generations:

Code: Select all

.....O
...O...O
.O...N...O
...O...O
.....O
But the oddest surprise was the r-pentonimo, which after 76,398 generations had a population of 86,158,122, including an estimated 20,000 gliders flying out in four huge sparse triangular formations (and about 20 orthogonal spaceships), fleeing a central seething ball of neutronioum growing at a rate of about 2/11c:

You're not in any breach of forum etiquette! Welcome to the forums!
This rule is interesting- and adding a live cell that never dies might make some useful signal circuitry like reflectors. It might be even more useful if Neutronium ALMOST never died. I'll look into this rule and see what I can find

A bit of stuff was already technically explored with Neutronium by Extrementhusiast, who made an extended life rule with Neutronium (however, it didn't occur naturally and wasn't given such a cool name. Check http://code.google.com/p/ruletablerepos ... i/TheRules)
The table was

Code: Select all

@RULE extendedlife

A new eater given there was

Code: Select all

x = 66, y = 8, rule = extendedlife
56.A$54.A.A$55.2A$2.2A15.A$A4.A11.A3.A12.A2.A$6.A15.A15.A22.2A.F$A5.A
10.A4.A11.A3.A21.A2.2FE$.6A11.5A12.4A22.2A.F!
So, I made a stable form with Neutronium:

Code: Select all

x = 52, y = 8, rule = Neutronium
39.A$37.A.A$38.2A$2.A$A3.A12.A2.A$5.A15.A22.2A.B.2B$A4.A11.A3.A21.A2.
2B.B.B$.5A12.4A22.2A.B.2B!
Last to note, the HWSS is now unstable because a cell of Neutronium is created.

I wonder if there are any Neutronium guns, like

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 3, rule = extendedlife
B.B2$B.B!
from extendedlife.

---
P.S. stabilized the eater in a smaller form, at least for SSes:

Code: Select all

x = 24, y = 5, rule = Neutronium
A2.A19.B$4.A13.2A.B$A3.A12.A2.3B$.4A13.2A.B$23.B!

Interesting to note about the the HWSS. No wonder I haven't seen any show up with the the r-pentomino pattern.

BTW, when I originally started this idea, I didn't notice the limitation on how variables worked in the @TABLE, and I accidentally forgot the true isolation death rule, so my rule looked like this:

Code: Select all

@RULE BadNeutronium
@TABLE
n_states:3
neighborhood:Moore
symmetries:permute
var a={1,2}
0,a,a,a,0,0,0,0,0,1
1,a,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
1,a,a,a,a,0,0,0,0,0
1,a,a,a,a,a,0,0,0,0
1,a,a,a,a,a,a,0,0,0
1,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,0,0
1,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,a,2 
Which grows an incredibly intricate and beautiful fractal-like pattern when you start with the r-pentomino.

So it's like B3/S023, with Neutronium?

I actually like it, note this wickstretcher which occurs in the R-pentomino's evolution:

Code: Select all

x = 34, y = 6, rule = BadNeutronium
2.A4.A$.2A4.A2.B2.A6.B2.A6.B2.A$2A.A3.2A$.A.A5.A5.B2.A6.B2.A$2.2A$6.A
.A!
The fractal-ness is really cool, and looks almost identical to a Julia set! Namely its because the B-heptomino is a chaotic replicator.

Also, since Neutronium doesn't die it can easily replace the rotor of any oscillator.

Code: Select all

x = 13, y = 13, rule = Neutronium
2.ABA3.ABA2$A4.A.A4.A$B4.B.B4.B$A4.B.B4.A$2.A2B3.2BA2$2.A2B3.2BA$A4.B
.B4.A$B4.B.B4.B$A4.A.A4.A2$2.ABA3.ABA!
Other random patterns that may or may not be of interest:

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 7, rule = Neutronium
2A$A.A$2.A$B.2A$2.A$A.A$2A!

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 10, rule = Neutronium
2A$A.A$2.A$B.2A$2.A$2.A$B.2A$2.A$A.A$2A!
Very small pipsquirter:

This rule is really cool. The following shows that you can use a block to make a very small eater with almost identical functionality to the eater 1, along with another eater that regenerates a beehive. There are also a load of neutronium core oscillators that make sparks that could be incredibly useful.

Some hand-found oscillators. Neutronium seems conductive to p3, in particular.

At some point I'll get to using one of those small pipsquirters to really reduce the size of reflectors.

I suppose that could work, as long as you still have workable logic circuitry and guns and such, to make reflectable gliders with. I'd be out of my element, personally, since Neutronium breaks Herschel circuitry, or nearly all of it anyway: there might just barely be a universal set left, since Fx77 and R64 are still intact. But anything with an R-pentomino stage is hopeless.

Could perfectly well build new Herschel conduits out of neutronium, of course, but that's a lot of work... Pentadecathlons are toast, and so are p46 guns and reflectors. But it looks like a fair fraction of p30 logic circuitry would still be usable:

In this rule, the B-heptomino turns into a knightpuffer which releases gliders.

In this rule, the B-heptomino turns into a knightpuffer which releases gliders.
The random stroke was nice, but I'm gonna call it Neutronium-6, because that makes it sound science-y!

And I'm gonna stick with the white-red colors, but no one else needs to know about that.

But alas, the wonderful, wonderful eater is unstable:

Code: Select all

x = 4, y = 3, rule = Nde
2.B$4B$2.B!
I suppose this one is still stable:

Code: Select all

x = 19, y = 7, rule = Nde
5.A$4.A10.A2.A$4.3A7.A$14.A3.A$14.4A$BA$BA!
The Herschel's evolution is really cool, sprouting a ton of B-heptomino puffers (of course, after looking at more patterns, apparently this isn't uncommon)

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 4, rule = Nde
A$3A$A.A$2.A!
Lastly, after a while, I realize your 6 neighbors means 'Life' neighbors, and not including Neutronium neighbors, because the center Neutronium cell here dies:

Code: Select all

x = 9, y = 3, rule = Nde
2B5.2B$.7B$2B5.2B!

Yes, the Neutronium dies if it has six or more live neighbors, including Neutronium neighbors, due to the final line in the rule table.

Below is a "chaos puffer". You will probably recognize it as Puffer 2.

I've been trying to make a CLEAN quadratic growth pattern with B-puffers in Nde. No success.

You would probably need rakes with a period around 520.
To do that with only the spacerakes working would make the first task filtering out most of the gliders.

I liked Neutronium and decided to make my own variation.

Code: Select all

Similar to the Neutronium rule by Mike Turniansky, but with richer behaviour.

My rule has two almost-never-dying states.

I expected it to be quite stable, but this prediction was wrong.

By the way, congratulations to moderators: your headache is back on the forums, so you will not get bored in the near future.

Also, a reflector with repeat time 48 (even though the Snark works flawlessly at 43 ticks):

Code: Select all

x = 34, y = 22, rule = DoubleN

2B2.B!
Edited: And a tiny p88 Herschel factory hooked up to a smaller H-to-G:

Code: Select all

x = 35, y = 11, rule = DoubleN

Sorry for the triple post, but DoubleN is onniperiodic thanks to a new 39-tick reflector.

Code: Select all

x = 22, y = 21, rule = DoubleN

G-to-more-accessible-pi (with attached pi track) with an abysmal repeat time of 132:

Code: Select all

x = 56, y = 39, rule = DoubleN

x₁=ηx
V ⃰_η=c²√(Λη)
K=(Λu²)/2
Pₐ=1−1/(∫^∞_t₀(p(t)ˡ⁽ᵗ⁾)dt)

$$x_1=\eta x$$
$$V^*_\eta=c^2\sqrt{\Lambda\eta}$$
$$K=\frac{\Lambda u^2}2$$
$$P_a=1-\frac1{\int^\infty_{t_0}p(t)^{l(t)}dt}$$
