Peter R. Raynham is a Life enthusiast who has found several small oscillators and wrote the first program designed to search for still lifes.

His search program was used to verify the lists of still lifes up to 13 cells that were constructed by Robert Wainwright and David Buckingham, and was used by Buckingham to complete the list up to 14 cells.

He also found several glider syntheses, including the synthesis for sidewalk, and the previous optimal (for twenty years) four-glider synthesis of the pentadecathlon.
