Conway's Game of Life is the classic example of cellular automation. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to code the shortest Game of Life implementation in your favourite language. The ...
The challenge is to find the shortest implementation of the game of life in 3D (example). These are the rules: Cells (in this case, cubes) with only 1 or less neighbours die, as if by lonliness. If ...
Here is a theoretical question - one that doesn't afford an easy answer in any case, not even the trivial one. In Conway's Game of Life, there exist constructs such as the metapixel which allow the ...
Given a positive integer N, determine the starting pattern on a N x N-grid that yield the longest non-repeating sequence under Game of Life-rules, and ends with a fixed pattern (cycle of length 1), ...
It is often said, that all programmers should be able to write a "hello world" program in any programming language after a few glances on that language (And quicksort after a few more glances). As ...
Researchers recently discovered an interesting bee colony that lives in an infinite field of honeycomb: Each cell can house a bee or not. In fact, the lives of those creatures appear to be a bit ...
