Why Mathematicians Care About Their Hat Color
from the funky-problems dept
An interesting NY Times article about a problem that’s keeping mathematicians up late at night known as “the hat problem”. Apparently it’s become very popular and is being discussed all over the place on the internet. There are, apparently, some potentially interesting things to be learned from some of the solutions that are popping up. If you’re interested in clever mind problems, this one is definitely a good one.
