B3/S013

Post by Extrementhusiast » March 26th, 2010, 6:42 pm

This is a rule that quickly settles into single dots, dominoes, duoplets (small diagonal strokes), and oscillators. I would also like to have a census of this, partly because even 1000 by 1000 random soups typically stabilize within 500 generations, and usually less than that. I currently have oscillators of periods 1 (still lifes), 2, 4, 7 (!), 10, and 12.

SL: 99.999% chance of seeing at least one of these, infinite amount possible because of extension (one resembles a snake)
P2: extremely common in many forms, infinite amount possible because of extension
P4: very common in five basic forms, infinite amount possible because of extension
P7: extremely rare, seen only once
P10: one form, somewhat rare (looks a bit like a toad)
P12: one form, quite common (a pre-loaf)

Is this the P7 you found?

Code: Select all

x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S013

I found it a while ago in the rule b378/s013 and it works in this rule too.

There's also a little ship:

Oh yeah, I put it in the pattern collection once but I unfortunately didn't save it. I have everything duplicated now.

@Lewis: Yes, that was the p7 I found.

This rule also supports some small c/5 spaceships:

Like many (or most?) rules that contain spaceships, this rule seems to contain many small c/5 spaceships while containing no small 2c/5 spaceships. Maybe someone more ambitious than I can find a 2c/5 spaceship. I also believe a width-13 or width-14 bilaterally-symmetric c/6 spaceship exists, but I have not yet done a search for it.

Also, here are some oscillators of periods 5, 6, 7, 8, and 11:

Interesting how one of the oscillators resembles Kok's galaxy. Did you find these by computer search?

The oscillators were found by random agar search with various symmetries. The spaceships were found using gfind.

2b2obo2b2o3$53b2ob2ob2obo2bo$51bobo2bo2bo2b2ob2o!
The triplets can be interchanged at will to create new p4 oscillators of any length and in some cases, wicks (when there is a repeating pattern). A couple of the p4 oscillators in the collection are small versions of this extendable type.

There are two triplets possible at each position, so it corresponds to a binary number. Therefore there are 2^(n-1) possible p4 oscillators for a given length with n triplets. The last triplet doesn't count because it behaves differently than the others and you end up with a different phase of the same oscillator.

I found that there are also extendable p2 oscillators of width 2 and any length:

Code: Select all

x = 16, y = 54, rule = B3/S013
2bo$2obo3$bob2o$obo3$ob2o$bo2b2o3$2o2bo$2b2ob2o3$2o2bobo$2b2obobo3$2o

3$2b2o2b2o2b2o2b2o$2o2b2o2b2o2b2o!
For any given length n the oscillator has n cells and again they correspond to a binary number. But the endpoints do not move and a sequence of three or more cells in a row must be avoided to allow the oscillator to work.

The p2 oscillators can be extended easily in this way:

1) add a cell at one end and see if it works.
2) if it does not work then advance the pattern by one generation and try extending it again. This time it will work and furthermore there will be two possible positions for the new cell.

The possibilities are not a simple power of two because sequences of three or more cells in a row have to be avoided.

EDIT:
The p2 oscillators described above can be placed with mirror images to create new oscillators:

Code: Select all

x = 5, y = 18, rule = B3/S013
bobo$bobo$bobo$o3bo$o3bo$bobo$o3bo$bobo$2ob2o$bobo$bobo$2ob2o$bobo$bob
o$o3bo$o3bo$bobo$o3bo!
These oscillators can have stationary cells in the middle, increasing the possible ways to extend them.

I meant to say it is new to the collection by Lewis posted in this thread. It stood out when I was running random soups. I thought it was pretty cool compared to the other simpler p4's posted in the collection. Where can I find the other "common" oscillators for B3/S013?

EDIT: Never mind, I will check David Eppstein's web page.

I tried quick searches for asymmetric c/2 & c/3 puffers. Thanks to the S01, the output is mostly dots and dominoes, but at least it provides evidence that this rule supports infinite growth, albeit linear. Here are examples of simple c/2 puffers of periods 4,6,8,10,12 &16. As with all of the examples below, it may be possible to graft the puffer engine onto a smaller, narrower or more conveniently shaped body.

The higher period c/2 puffers tthat I found at p24 & p48 were mostly LCMs of lower period engines. This messy p48 was the exception:

Puffer searches usually throw up some higher period spaceships. Here are some representative samples of p4,p6(x2) and p10 spacehips;

At slower speeds, puffers are less easy to find and I've only come up with two results at c/3. Here is a p9 c/3 'dot puffer':
