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.
