Experimental Mathematics Seminar

The Peaceable Queens Problem

Yukun Yao, Rutgers University

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Thursday, 12 September 2019 at 5:00PM - 6:00PM

Abstract: We will talk about the peaceable queens problem, the protagonist of OEIS sequence A250000, and our partial progresses. Symbolically, we prove that Jubin’s construction of two pentagons is at least a local optimum.   Numerically, the exact numerical optimums for some specific configurations are found. Our method can be easily applied to more complicated
configurations with more parameters.

This is a joint work with Prof. Doron Zeilberger.
