Thread for basic questions
Re: Thread for basic questions
I was measuring correlation of lifespan to the size of torus when I discovered this strange distribution.
Why is it discrete rather than smooth?
EDIT: It later came out to be an artifact as I logrithmised the integer type lifespan, leading to a distortion to the original discrete distribution.
And why are there strange overlapping on the right?
Lifespan of 30000 random soup at 35% on 10x10 torus.
lifespan_life.xlsx
By the way, I noticed the log(lifespan) is proportional to the width of a square torus, at least for a small torus. I can't say why it's the case.

Re: Thread for basic questions
Hmm. I thought at first this was the harder question about how many rows it might take to complete a still life, or stator, once you have a complete straight row of p1 cells.* I have a vague recollection of a discussion between people who were actually good at this kind of thing, years ago but I don't remember how many. In practice it seemed as if N rows were always needed, but it seemed possible that some yetunseen weird configuration might need N+1 or N+2... for N somewhere between 3 and 5, if I recall correctly.NotLiving wrote:On a related note: is there an upper bound on the depth required to support an arbitrary row of stilllife with only dead cells on the other side...?
I think the answer is similar for an arbitrary row of still life with only emptiness beyond: seems to be single digits, but I don't know of a formal proof. There might possibly be a general method for constructing support, where it can be done  in which case somebody has very likely solved the problem already, I just don't remember it or don't know about it. There aren't all that many cases to deal with, unless you allow ON cells in groups longer than two... but then to make it a still life you have to match it by an inductor on the other side, which is not "only dead cells". Are you intending to include length3 and longer inductors in your question?
Even with length1 and length2 chains of ON cells being all that is allowed, there are some configurations that can't actually be made stable if you're working from one side  obobobo! and longer chains of alternating ON and OFF, right? Or am I missing a trick?NotLiving wrote:...assuming there is a way to support said row...
*EDIT: Vaguely related but not specifying any particular width: Richard Schroeppel's "Cool Out" Conjecture (from sometime before 1992) 
If a configuration C is locally stable over a rectangle R, then there exists a configuration C* such that (a) C* is locally equal to C over R; and (b) C* is globally stable.
 which is still a conjecture as far as I know, EDIT but there's a lot I don't know [see next post].

Subject: Coolout Conjecture counterexample
An outstanding question is the "Coolout Conjecture":
Given a partial Life pattern that's internally consistent
with being part of a still life (stable pattern), is there always
a way to add a stabilizing boundary? Is there an upper bound
to the required boundary size, perhaps 3 cells thick?
[Variations for stabilizing/completing partial oscillators are
also proposed.]
Counterexample:
xx..xx
x.xx.x
The pattern is internally selfconsistent with stability:
Each cell has a number of live neighbors that, with possible
boundary help, makes it stable.
But there's no way to stabilize the top edge:
To preserve the xs adjacent to the corner cells, the row
above the top edge must have six consecutive OFF cells.
But this prevents stabilizing the two OFF cells in the
middle of the top edge, each of which needs one or more
ON neighbors in the stabilizing row.
This example shows that internal consistency is not enough
for stabilizability; some additional hypothesis is required.
The obvious extra hypothesis to try is "1cell boundary
consistency": that the pattern have at least one possible
1cell thick extension that's consistent with stability.
There probably also need to be some topological restrictions
on the pattern: connected, or perhaps some kind of convexity.

Continuing the lifespan topic.
Seemingly "replicator" is the only rule that exhibit a statistical different characteristic in the lifespantorus size distribution.

What is the highest "dimension" of an infinite growth pattern created?
By this I mean:
guns (SM), puffers (MS), and rakes (MM) are 2d, consisting of two main things,
breeders (MMS, MSM, SMM and MMM in most cases), consisting of 3 main things and are therefore 3D
So, have any 4d (for example, MMMM) "superbreeders" or the like been constructed?
On a similar topic, have MSS or SSS (things that make infinite bricklayers/blockstackers) been created?

Re: Thread for basic questions
There isn't really any limit to this as far as I'm aware, though it must be remembered that the actual longterm population growth rate in an ndimensional CA cannot exceed nth degree polynomial growth (2nd degree is quadratic, 3rd degree is cubic, etc). But we can still make things that act like what you've described. For example, I found a quadraticgrowth MMMM 'superbreeder' in an old rule known as aurora19 a few years back. I'm sure there's some other examples out there.muzik wrote:What is the highest "dimension" of an infinite growth pattern created?

The switch engine produces a replica of itself, and keeps doing so, at c/12 orthogonal:
Of course, we already know how to stabilise this into a spaceship.
House, similarly, produces a replica of itself:

Re: Thread for basic questions
Are there patterns that are simply guns "by definition" and require no stabilisation components?
The Gosper glider gun consists of two queen bees and two blocks, and therefore is a "composite" gun. The Simkin gun similarly consists of blocks to stabilise it, etc. Whereas the b38/s23 gun I posted here earlier is just a pattern of its own with no stabilisation agents.
Could guns like that exist within normal life?

Re: Thread for basic questions
Could certainly happen. We've only searched 0% of the total space of B3/S23 pattern possibilities so far, even with Catagolue  so how could we possibly know that something like that isn't out there?muzik wrote:Are there patterns that are simply guns "by definition" and require no stabilisation components?
I suspect there's probably a p14 pattern out there somewhere that's all one piece, looks like a supervolcano or a pipsquirter except probably bigger, but it spits out gliders instead of sparks. It's going to be mighty hard to find, is all.
What do you think of the period156 multibarrel gun? That's kind of made out of four identical pieces, but it could also be considered one piece. Would it count, if it wasn't for the four stabilizing blocks at the corners?

This is a bug which will be fixed in the next released build of LifeViewer. Thanks for spotting it!NotLiving wrote:(Also: why does the viewer miss a row of cells?)

Probably not. Those four blocks are pretty much required.dvgrn wrote:What do you think of the period156 multibarrel gun? That's kind of made out of four identical pieces, but it could also be considered one piece. Would it count, if it wasn't for the four stabilizing blocks at the corners?
Now perhaps, if we were able to link many of these guns onto each other in a way that would make them not require those blocks...

The point of dvgrn's question was not to explicitly build one, but just checking what we are looking for precisely. To put dvgrn's question in another way:muzik wrote:Probably not. Those four blocks are pretty much required.
Let us say that we found something similar to the p156 double barrelled gun, but with no external support. The gun has 4 identical units that mutually support each other. Would that count?
And from your reply, I guess the answer is "yes", right?
Best wishes to you, Scorbie

I was thinking about something else earlier: are there any infinite growth patterns that are a polyplet in at least one phase?

Depends on what you mean. In B1/S, a single cell is a p2 c diagonal 2D replicator

This post was brought to you by the letter D, for dishes that Andrew J. Wade won't do. (Also Daniel, which happens to be me.)

Even if you stick with B3/S23, a switch engine is infinitegrowth, and it's a polyplet in quite a few of its phases.drc wrote:@muzik

If you meant "polyomino" (rookwise connected cells) instead of "polyplet" (kingwise connected cells), the answer is still "Sure!"  if I'm understanding the question correctly. Just write a script to enumerate polyominoes, and run them through apgsearch. Sooner rather than later a switch engine will show up in the census. In fact, that was how Charles Corderman found the switch engine, back in 1971 (apparently by enumerating nonominoes, that is, not by using apgsearch).

That is indeed a rake that creates rakes that create rakes.
Well then.

Are there any guns that fire multiple types of spaceships?

Yes, there are even configurations which fire an infinite sequence of distinct spaceships.muzik wrote:Are there any guns that fire multiple types of spaceships?
