|Title:||Coloring Statistics of an m × n grid|
|Speaker:||Jocelyn Quaintance, Rutgers University|
|You are given an m × n chess board and c cans of paint. Each can of paint has its own paint brush. The goal is to color each square of the chess board using this selection of c colors. There is one catch. Before painting each square you must shut your eyes and arbitrarily select a paint brush. When you are ﬁnished how many edge adjacent squares share the same color? This talk explains how humans and computers apply probabilistic methods to answer such a question.|
