It was pure joy to go through some of the things that I did over the last week. Starting from reading on VS 2005 and .net 2.0, to the biometrics verification and allied stuff, to distance function and some math, it was simply beautiful.
It was pure delight and ecstasy in re discovering the linear approximations for the distance function, understanding the Hausdorff distance and solving puzzles with simple math.
This piece is finds itself here not to tell you about all this, but about a simple puzzle. This puzzle is credited to Sam Lyod. One of the greats in his own respect.
The puzzle I am referring to here is Chickens in the Corn >>
The puzzle as it is not something great, but it finds its way here, as it is the one that triggered the puzzle drive in me after a long time. The above statement for the problem is taken from cut-the-knot, a beautiful site for interactive mathematics. You can find the above problem with a java applet here on this site.
Enjoy cutting the knot. (Pun Intended.)
