happy ending problem

Recommended Posts

I'd work on it, but if you solve it does that mean you have to marry someone?

It seems tantalizingly simple to throw down one fewer points and show the absence of the required n-gon.

But I guess that's not enough. It's harder to prove something doesn't exist in any case b/c you have to look at every case and there are too many. You'd have to classify them somehow and disprove each class.

Must be easier ways to get $1k, but it's interesting nonetheless.

Have you found ways to classify groups of points?

here's what I've been thinking.

using the good will hunting problem to classify groups of points.

I'm not quite sure how yet, been thinking about it though.

I'm not sure how either.

But it may lead to a divide and conquer kind of simplification, which seems to be needed.

I'd be interested to know what you come up with.
