# Trivial

An period-*n* oscillator is considered **trivial** if none of its cells oscillate at the full period, i.e. period *n*. By definition, an oscillator is trivial if and only if its strict volatility is precisely 0.

Trivial oscillators are not generally considered interesting, except in special cases and insofar as that no non-trivial examples of period-34 oscillators in Life are known.
