Proofathon Contest Number 2: Game Theory and Graph Theory

Main post link -> http://proofathon.org/

Hey Proofathoners. We are very pleased to announce that the second monthly Proofathon contest has just been launched! This month's contest is Game Theory and Graph Theory. We had more than 20 participants for our first competition, and we hope that we can do even better for this one! The contest is run and the problems are created by members of the Brilliant community, just like you. You can participate in the contest by visiting our website at http://proofathon.org, creating an account, and visiting the contests page. Please do not discuss live problems here, but feel free to ask us any questions or share any comments. Thank you, and Good luck!

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Just joined! But why does the first contest I write have to be something I hate?

You don't have to do this contest. Just wait until a contest comes that you especially like!
