### Re: Thread for basic non-CGOL questions

What is the smallest (known) log-growth pattern in any isotropic non-totalistic Life-like cellular automaton (without B0)?

Bonus: And log(log)-growth?

I'm pretty sure cblocks allows unlimited instant pushing and so cannot be expressed by a rule table.Moosey wrote:Where can I find the cblocks rule table?

I am a prolific creator of many rather pathetic googological functions

What is the highest (known) period for an unloopable (loopability 1) RRO in isotropic non-totalistic Life-like cellular automaton (without B0)?

I have a p1912 (or a predecessor of it) which is of loopability 1 in my signature.GUYTU6J wrote:What is the highest (known) period for an unloopable (loopability 1) RRO in isotropic non-totalistic Life-like cellular automaton (without B0)?

Are there any guns for hybrid Gs in Quadlife or Immigration?

For instance, these:
Or, perhaps my question would be better phrased:

Are there any synths for hybrid Gs in Quadlife? (since it can emulate immigration, I won't ask about immigration)

Here's a tricolor HF synth, to demonstrate that such things are possible:

Anyways, back to my question. Can anyone make a synth of this?

I don't think so--the graphics don't help, but you may want to check golly's ruletable repository for Reversible world, which is a PCA. I don't believe it's margolus.Gustone wrote:Is PCA margolus

### Re: Thread for basic non-CGOL questions

No. Partitioned CA do not use an alternating neighbourhood such as Margolus rules do. Instead, each cell is divided up (partitioned) into as many parts as the cell has neighbours. So for a 4-neighbour PCA, each cell has 4 parts. These parts are denoted as U(p), R(ight), D(own), and L(eft) in the paper referenced by the PCA thread. Each part has it's own state (0 or 1 for a 2 state PCA). A 2 state PCA with 4 neighbours is denoted as a 2PCA(4) cellular automata. The evolution of the CA is determined by a local function which maps from 1 part of each of the 4 neighbour cells to the 4 parts of the centre cell. Here's a little diagram which shows the four parts of a central cell and it's 4 neighbours. The state of the four parts in the central cell (u, r, d, and l) is entirely determined by the four parts labelled U, R, D, and L from the neighbouring cells (i.e. a cells current state does not influence it's resulting state)Gustone wrote:Is PCA margolus

I believe the answer is 8548, given by the sequence A054247:muzik wrote:How many different conditions does the range-1 Moore 3D isotropic non-totalistic rulespace have?

*Number of n X n binary matrices under action of dihedral group of the square D_4.*

This includes birth and survival configurations, so the number of neighbourhood configurations is 4274.

**Edit:**This is almost certainly wrong, see below

### Re: Thread for basic non-CGOL questions

Actually, this is clearly not the desired sequence, though I'm presuming that the term for n=2 matches the 1D case coincidentally. I'm fairly sure there'll be no such coincidence for n=4 - I see no reason why the number of 4x4 binary matrices under D_4 should be the same as the number of 3x3x3 binary matrices under the octahedral group O_h, which is what we actually want to know.wildmyron wrote:I believe the answer is 8548, given by the sequence A054247:muzik wrote:How many different conditions does the range-1 Moore 3D isotropic non-totalistic rulespace have?Number of n X n binary matrices under action of dihedral group of the square D_4.

### Re: Thread for basic non-CGOL questions

For a 3D CA on a cubic honeycomb, would a spaceship with displacement (x,x,x) be described as diagonal, or would this apply to (x,x,0)? Is there a standardised nomenclature for these?

I personally would have suggested "paragonal" for (x,x,x), and maybe "metagonal" for (x,x,x,x).

### Re: Thread for basic non-CGOL questions

If time is continuous then space is necessarily also continuous since you can't have a cell sitting in between two discrete borders - or else what's the point of continuous time?

### Re: Thread for basic non-CGOL questions

Here's an example of a geophysical model which uses a discrete lattice but continuous time. Of course the implementation of the model is not actually continuous, but an approximation to it. The framework models continuous time by determining the probability of a transition occurring between every pair of neighbouring cells within a small dt, and stochastically (randomly) determining whether a transition occurred for each cell pair within every dt. With small enough dt this becomes a good approximation of continuous time. I've only skim read the paper so I hope I'm not misrepresenting it.
