M554: How to Win at (Some) Games in Rainstorm Fall 2020 (Dec. 05 - 06, 2020)
I want to give a talk about how to win at games in general, but it turns out that games are hard. Instead, I'll be talking about a very specific subset of games called "impartial games". These games are much easier to analyze, but are by no means trivial. Our goal will be to come up with a strategy to beat any impartial game. Along the way, we'll do some weird math like "playing tic-tac-toe with only X's" and "accidentally drawing a SierpiƄski triangle on a chess board".
