c/4 diagonal eater spaceship for untamed oblique barber pole
Nicolay Beluchenko, 5 February 2006
Hartmut Holzwart and Nicolay Beluchenko have been working on the moving equivalent of a fencepost, for an oblique p4 wave pattern that can be stabilized at the trailing end by a c/4 'eater' spaceship, along the lines of recent 'anteater' patterns. A matching 'stretcher' end for the same wave is currently an open problem.
