Puzzling Seminar

Prof. Marc van Kreveld visited in November to give a research seminar in the Department of Computer Science.

Mark's talk "Puzzles in Wood, Puzzles on Paper, and Puzzles in Bytes" focused on puzzles, their design and difficulty.

The talk included plenty of examples, with puzzles that use wood, metal and paper, some of which Marc had designed and made. 

The talk was relevant to a variety of work undertaken in the School of Mathematics,Computer Science and Engineering including our research involving games, physical objects, creativity and mathematics.
