M1322: Prisoner Games in Splash! Spring 2011 (Apr. 16 - 17, 2011)
You've probably heard some of those puzzles about wardens asking prisoners to play some game and, against all our expectations, come up with a strategy that wins a large amount of the time. We'll take a look at some of these games and work out strategies to win them. In doing so, we'll see some cool mathematics. This course will also have real-life applications, since you never know when it might be helpful to have a winning strategy: if you're ever (wrongfully, we hope!) arrested and forced by an evil warden to play one of these games, you'll probably escape unscathed!
