New Period 4 Oscillators

Olive Olive P4s P4s

Nicolay Beluchenko has discovered a large set of related Period 4 oscillators. They are based on components which can connect to the rotor component he calls the "Olive", shown at right. This component can be connected to other Period 4 oscillators and rotors when one of the right cells outlined in red is active during generation 4n+1, and then when one of the left cells is active in generation 4n+3. Three examples supported by various P4 with suitable sparks are shown.

Also shown are a selection of the new objects reported. Not all of these include the Olive component, but contain components which can be combined with it to produce other oscillators.
