Abstract

A mathematical puzzle analyzed by a group of people is discussed. The puzzle solvers worked on a design to check whether a rapidly pulsed energy source could give evidence of high-dimensional vibrational strings. They imagined a roadway with seven rows where some bad guys have placed a tunnel from the bottom, beginning at the road market start, to the top at end. The group analyzed the minimum number of probe devices required to determine the precise route of the tunnel in one hour.
