### 15 in 15: Efficient 15-bit Synthesis Project (DONE!)

As of no later than 6:00 p.m. November 19th, 2016, every 15-bit still life is synthesizable in fewer than 15 gliders!
Thanks to everyone in this thread who has contributed syntheses (even just one), and a Caterpillar-sized shoutout to everyone who made Catagolue possible.

Partial for 15.845, probably 15G:

Hate how seemingly every occurrence in C1 appears to be due to the same R+hive+several hundred generations base reaction or an equivalent.

15.919 was listed as a 15G synthesis in mniemiec's post of Bob Shemyakin's improvements to the list.
My comment was pointed more towards the use of "improved to 19" when the current best was 15 via that method.
Also, it appears that 15.845 should never have been on the list to begin with, looking at that 9G synthesis that's the precursor to the full synthesis.

The first line of that is actually based on Bob's 7-glider synthesis of 15.845, which renders BlinkerSpawn's recent 16-glider synthesis obsolete (as well as improving everything that depended on it: Bob's 21-glider 15.918 plus the 3 jams and 5 molds). The remaining lines are my earlier syntheses.

Not constructionwise, however. The secondary method (which you did) facilitates separate construction of the blinker and the junk reaction that the junk object from the primary method decays into as opposed to direct synthesis of the first object and appropriate accompanying gliders.

Not immediately related to the thread, but one of the early "wait, what?" mold variants in Catagolue involved a snake and python, so it's probably the one you mention. Looking over the soups, here's a way to make it in at most 9G; 8G or less is likely via constellations:

Code: Select all

Seconded.

EDIT: 15.438 in 8G; 7G very likely if that block predecessor can be made in 3 instead of 4.

I have about a thousand of these, which will take a while to get together. At the moment, they're high up on the list of things to work on once the next (hopefully 2016) update to my web site is finished.

I count 11 (unless I missed something). Thus also the carrier+python one for 17. These both reduce the corresponding 16-bit still-lifes 16.2303 and 16.2302 by 1 to 12 and 17 respectively.

Before mniemiec does this, I have a method I've been using to find 3-glider syntheses of constellations if you're interested...

Coincidentally, I combined BlinkerSpawn's predecessor from Friday + chris_c's junk maker to make 13 glider synthesis of 15.390:

EEK! Two errors! I've fixed them now, sorry about that.

Here's 15.1207 in 14 gliders. In doing this, I discovered (or maybe re-discovered) a new "adding" mechanism.

Code: Select all

``````x = 81, y = 31, rule = B3/S23

Now all 15-bit still-lifes with syntheses in over 14 gliders lie in-between 15.400 and 15.1200!

EDIT:

Here's 15.1103 in 11 gliders:
