t log(t) Population in generation t is asymptotic to t log(t)/48. More specifically, for n >= 2, the population in gen 60n is . n n - m n - m + 4 . 5747 + 247n + 5 SUM (2 floor(-----) - floor(---------)). . m=1 4m 4m Three breeders and two puffers create a sequence of large period guns; the N'th gun has period 240N. In gen t there are about t/60 finished guns, which have emitted about t/(240*1) + t/(240*2) + t/(240*3) + ... + t/(240*(t/60)) ~ t log(t)/240 gliders.
