The Angel Problem

Bryan Ek, Rutgers University

Location:  GSL
Date & time: Wednesday, 07 February 2018 at 12:15PM - 1:15PM

Abstract:  In honor of the Super Bowl, I will be talking about the classic Angel problem by Conway. (Feel free to decide for yourself which team is the Devil). This problem went many years with only restricted progress before being solved simultaneously by several authors in 2007. I will present some of the easy early results and try to explain which side has the winning strategy in general.
