### BSFK rulespace

Since Generations is usually inadequate for stabilizing rules, I tried to come up with a Generations-like rulespace that would be better for stabilizing explosive rules. This rulespace is expressed in the form of Bb/Ss/Kk/Ff. b and s are sometimes multiple numbers, but k and f are single numbers. Using this, the rule goes as follows.

1. There are three states: living, dead, and destructive.
2. A living cell does not die unless it has k or more destructive neighbors. If it does not have s living neighbors, it becomes a destructive cell in the next generation.
3. If a destructive cell has one or more living neighbors, it dies.
4. A cell is born if it has less than f destructive neighbors and has b living neighbors.

Of course, the natural thing to do would be to try to make a rule like Brian's Brain. B2/S/K1/F2 seems to be the rule most like Brian's Brain, although it has much more oscillator variety. It is somewhat like 2x2 in that you can make arbitarily long period oscillators in this rule.

Code: Select all

``````x = 192, y = 192, rule = B2SK1F2

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 6, rule = B2SF2K1

Code: Select all

### Re: BSFK rulespace

A Java implementation of the BSFK family of rules is included in the following archive:

http://bprentice.webenet.net/Java%20Squ ... l/BSFK.zip

The program extends my basic Square Cell program which is briefly described in the file "Java Square Cell.html" which is included in the archive. The Java source code together with some example patterns are also included.

The program supports the generation and exploration of new random rules. To generate a new rule, repeatedly hit the N key until an interesting rule is found. Two dialogs are used to control the automaton. The first of these displays or changes the four parameters B, S, F and K. The second determines which parameters are changed by the random rule generator. Either B and S or F and K or B, S, F and K can be changed.

The results are somewhat disappointing. However, alternate definitions of the rule family can easily be explored by recoding the step method in file BSFK.java.

This makes a nice factory which should be able to be turned into a gun.

### Re: BSFK rulespace

This is very explosive rule. Two cells are enough for quadratic growth:

Code: Select all

``````x = 1, y = 2, rule = B2SF2K1
A\$A!
``````
As for linear growth it requires 4 cells (at least of what I could find):

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 2, rule = B2SF2K1
A2.A\$A2.A!
``````

For some reason not all of the "lengths" survive. And what survive or not, is kinda mystery for me.

And here are some diagonal patterns:

And here is some interesting pattern but it needs to be "stubilized":

Code: Select all

``````x = 4, y = 4, rule = B2SF2K1
.A\$3.A\$2.2A!
``````

Code: Select all

``````x = 6, y = 5, rule = B2SF2K1

EDIT

Here is interesting diagonal ship:

Code: Select all

``````x = 10, y = 9, rule = B2SF2K1

Synthesis of diagonal rake from "large" glider:

Another orthogonal puffer:

p8 oscillator:

Code: Select all

``````x = 8, y = 8, rule = B2SF2K1
2\$3.A\$4.A2\$2.A.A!

And finally 3 cell methuselah (defined as pattern that stops to grow in population after N generations):

Code: Select all

``````x = 3, y = 3, rule = B2SF2K1
A2\$A.A!
``````
stabilizes after 147 generations.

The latest version of the 5S Project contains over 226,000 spaceships. There is also a GitHub mirror of the collection. Tabulated pages up to period 160 (out of date) are available on the LifeWiki.

Nice! This comes out to be sort of sawtooth with linear minimums and quadratic maximums.

### Re: BSFK rulespace

I was thinking that the statement of "destructive cells die if they have 1 or more living neighbors" was a bit arbitrary. So I was thinking that maybe there could be a larger super-set rulespace BSFKL of the format Bb/Ss/Ff/Kk/Ll where rule 3 is replaced by the following:

"A destructive cell only survives if it has l living neighbors. If it does not, it dies."

With this change, Bb/Ss/Ff/Kk rules would be equivalent to Bb/Ss/Ff/Kk/L0.

(just a thought)

### Re: BSFK rulespace

@Sphenocorona: Good idea, but to make the thing more general, I suggest that F, K, and L be changed to groups of numbers, so B2/S/F2/K1 would be B2/S/F2345678/K12345678/L0. Note than in the original notation, F1 stabilizes almost all rules, since a single destructive dot is an indestructible pattern.
@simsim314: All of the lengths can be expressed in the form (2^n - 2), where n is an integer.

Here's a (real) diagonally moving rake. If this rule can be proven to have universal construction, a breeder would be proven possible.

This was a very good suggestion!

With reference to this post:

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1381#p12045

I have added BSFKL.zip here:

http://bprentice.webenet.net/Java%20Squ ... /BSFKL.zip

This archive contains a Java program which implements this suggestion. I expect to add more example rules and patterns from time to time.

### Re: BSFK rulespace

Sixteen rules from the family BSFKL have been briefly explored and the results are in the updated archive here:

http://bprentice.webenet.net/Java%20Squ ... /BSFKL.zip

These rules were randomly generated by Square Cell.

Rule trees for three of these rules were generated by RuleTreeGen.java which is included with Golly. The rule file together with an example gun for each of these follow.

### Re: BSFK rulespace

@bprentice: Something must be wrong with your rule. The updated rule definiton was as follows.
1. There are three states: living, dead, and destructive.
2. A living cell does not die unless it has k destructive neighbors. If it does not have s living neighbors, it becomes a destructive cell in the next generation.
3. If a destructive cell does not have l living neighbors, it dies.
4. A cell is born if it does not have f destructive neighbors and has b living neighbors.
Row 1 evolves into Row 2. It should evolve into Row 3.

### Re: BSFK rulespace

c0b0p0 wrote:Something must be wrong with your rule.
This rule family is expressed in the form of Bb/Ss/Ff/Kk/Ll.
Each of b, s, f, k and l can be multiple unique numbers in the range 0 to 8.

A cell can be in one of three states: live, dead or destructive.
A live cell dies if it has k destructive neighbors.
If a live cell does not have k destructive neighbors but does have s live neighbors it remains alive.
If a live cell has neither k destructive neighbors nor s live neighbors it becomes a destructive cell.
A destructive cell dies if it has l live neighbors and remains a destructive cell otherwise.
A cell is born if it has f destructive neighbors and b live neighbors.

Here is the Java Step method code:

Code: Select all

``````  public int step(int row, int column)
{
int neighbors[] =
{
squareCell.getNeighbor(row - 1, column - 1),
squareCell.getNeighbor(row    , column - 1),
squareCell.getNeighbor(row + 1, column - 1),
squareCell.getNeighbor(row - 1, column    ),
squareCell.getNeighbor(row + 1, column    ),
squareCell.getNeighbor(row - 1, column + 1),
squareCell.getNeighbor(row    , column + 1),
squareCell.getNeighbor(row + 1, column + 1)
};
int cell = squareCell.getNeighbor(row, column);
int count1 = 0;
int count2 = 0;
for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++)
if (neighbors[i] == 1)
count1++;
else if (neighbors[i] == 2)
count2++;
if (cell == 1)
if (k[count2] == 1)
return 0;
else
{
if (s[count1] == 1)
return 1;
return 2;
}
else if (cell == 2)
if (l[count1] == 1)
return 0;
else
return 2;
else
if ((f[count2] == 1) && (b[count1] == 1))
return 1;
return 0;
}
``````
Since no rules have been published using your revised definition I suggest we use mine.

### Re: BSFK rulespace

Two more rules have been added to the archive here:

http://bprentice.webenet.net/Java%20Squ ... /BSFKL.zip

This brings the total to eighteen. The BSFKL rule family seems to be rich in interesting rules and with Square Cell they are easy to find.

A Golly rule tree has been generated for one of the new rules and this rule file together with a diagonal gun and some diagonal ships are here:

It supports numerous small objects that emit streams of gliders. Here are some examples:

The rule also has a diagonal replicator from which oscillators and guns can be constructed. Here is an example:
