  1. Spaceship

    In a cellular automaton, a finite pattern is called a spaceship if it reappears after a certain number of generations in the same orientation but in a different position. The smallest such number of generations is called the period of the spaceship. The speed of a spaceship is often expressed in terms of c, the metaphorical speed of light which in many cellular automata is the fastest that an effect can spread. For example, a glider in Conway's Game of Life is said to have a speed of, as it takes four generations for a given state to be translated by one cell. Similarly, the lightweight spaceship is said to have a speed of, as it takes four generations for a given state to be translated by two cells. More generally, if a spaceship in a 2D automaton is translated by after generations, then the speed is defined as: This notation can be readily generalised to cellular automata with dimensionality other than two. A tagalong is a pattern that is not a spaceship in itself but that can be attached to the back of a spaceship to form a larger spaceship. Similarly, a pushalong is placed at the front. A pattern that, when a spaceship is input, outputs a copy of the spaceship travelling in a different direction is called a reflector.

  3. Asier Marzo:

    What we have here is what we call an acoustic hologram - or what we have called an acoustic hologram because I think it's the first time it has been used, a traditional hologram it's made of light and you have flat surfaces. Nonetheless it creates a 3D light field. If you remember Star Wars you can see the robot R2D2 and it's broadcasting a 3D spaceship, even from a flat surface. So this is exactly the same; we have a flat surface and we are creating a 3D acoustic field that can surround the particle.
