3456/278/5 (multiple state rule)

Post by Extrementhusiast » February 9th, 2010, 2:33 am

This is the thread for this specific multi-state rule that I like to call "Space Station" because there are "filaments" that extend through space. Anybody found a side rake for 4x2 spaceships?

An interesting variant of "Star Wars." By the way, are there any Generations search programs?

EDIT: A diagonal pillar construction:

Code: Select all

x = 22, y = 22, rule = 3456/278/5
3.ABCD$3.ABCD$4.ABCD$2A3.ABCD$2BA3.ABCD$2CBA3.ABCD$2DCBA3.ABCD$2.DCBA
3.ABCD$3.DCBA3.ABCD$4.DCBA3.ABCD$5.DCBA3.ABCD$6.DCBA3.ABCD$7.DCBA3.AB
CD$8.DCBA3.ABCD$9.DCBA3.ABCD$10.DCBA3.ABCD$11.DCBA3.ABCD$12.DCBA$13.D
CBA$14.DCB$15.DC$16.D!
Adding one more 1-tail on one makes a gun:

Code: Select all

x = 22, y = 23, rule = 3456/278/5
3.ABCD$3.ABCD$4.ABCD$2A3.ABCD$2BA3.ABCD$2CBA3.ABCD$2DCBA3.ABCD$2.DCBA

CBA$14.DCBA$15.DCB$16.DC$17.D!
EDIT2: If this doesn't scream "omniperiodic", I don't know what does.

Code: Select all

x = 37, y = 38, rule = 3456/278/5
14.BA$12.A2.A2.A2.A2.A$11.15A$10.3A2.A2.A2.A2.3A$9.3A13.3A$8.3A15.3A$

Excuse me? Could you make visuals or instruct me how to view the code?

These paste fine in Golly.

EDIT: Omniperiodic for all periods possible (due to 5 states, 5 is minimum period):

It should work in any version of Golly that supports the 'generations' rules (2.0 and up). I use version 2.1 (the most recent), and it works fine.

Here's something interesting in this rule. A diagonal wave produces the Sierpiński triangle:

I have not yet been able to stabilize the bottom of the wave properly, however.

Edit: It is possible to create guns of all periods above 7 by a simple spaceship duplicator and stable reflectors. This pattern demonstrates the principle:

Unfortunately, the converter causes the gun to be pseudo-period. Here is a multi-step converter that preserves the period (can certainly be improved upon):

I didn't realize the converter was doing that, I was only interested in the resulting stream.

Here is a smaller gun that is a true p6:

Code: Select all

x = 11, y = 9, rule = 3456/278/5
8.DC$5.DB2A.B$2.D2.A.4A$3.ABCD.A$3.ABCD.A$5.A.4A$.A3.DB2A.B$3A5.DC$.A

This precursor is for a different p6 dual gun and is only 5 x 6:

Code: Select all

x = 5, y = 6, rule = 3456/278/5
3A.A$.3A$2.A$2.A$.3A$3A.A!
EDIT:
Another p6 gun starts with a 3 x 8 pattern but makes wide spaceships:

Code: Select all

x = 3, y = 8, rule = 3456/278/5

Here is an interesting "natural" binary counter construction I have not seen before in any rule:
Very interesting -- Your pattern has a growth rate of O(t log t). There is a 'natural' O(t log t) pattern in Life called "Gott's dots". It should be in your "Golly/HashLife" directory. Despite its name, it was actually discovered by Bill Gosper, and WedGe-GRoW (named after Gosper) was discovered by Nick Gotts.

In your pattern, note the interesting effect of 'tunneling gliders'. A spaceship appears to propagate through the static columns, just behind the puffer. In reality, it is an optical illusion, caused by the fact that both the 'tunneling' spaceship and the puffer travel at the same velocity.


Generations rules seem rich in these binary-counting mechanisms; here is a discovery of mine in Brian's Brain:

Code: Select all

x = 60, y = 61, rule = /2/3

I found it completely by accident, and is related to the ruler sequence. It is qualitatively similar to your pattern, but has a completely different internal mechanism, and a different (more mundane) growth rate.

The most striking feature of my pattern is the fact that (after a large, Hyperspeed-fueled amount of time) the bottom-left corner of the pattern has perfect fractal self-similarity. Successive magnifications appear identical, due to the power-of-two zooming in Golly.
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

OK, that explains it. I don't have the updated version of Golly! (so it doesn't support Generations)
