Re: 2012 HSNCT discussion

I think the first line was quite hard, but the clues were not that bad otherwise. Konig's lemma is very often stated as the special case of the general Konig's lemma applied to infinite trees (try searching for "Konig's lemma" on google) in which case the child phrasing makes sense. Even in general...

Re: 2012 HSNCT discussion

This theorem shows the existence of a child in proving {K\"onig's lemma} and is iterated to prove {Schur's theorem}. It implies that no fixed-size {hash table} can avoid {collisions} forever, and that any five-card {poker hand} must have (*) two cards of the same suit. Johann Dirichlet [DEER-ik-let...

Re: 2012 HSNCT discussion

Out of curiosity, did anyone get the Pigeonhole principle tossup (round 14) before the hash table clue?

Re: 2012 ICT: question-specific discussion

The one (DI) tossup I remember that I felt had a possibly too-easy lead in (or at least the one that the lead-in difficulty affected the outcome of a game I played) was the one on "satisfiability" -- Gordon from WUSTL and I buzzer-raced on it after "Horn" was mentioned. It's entirely plausible that...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: ANGST (Andy's Non-Guerrilla Summer Tournament)

There still should be enough people to field two teams between Centennial, Woburn, and Lisgar, keeping Brendan and Yohan on their own team so that there would be eleven teams to play with. If Centennial, Woburn, and Lisgar are a sure deal, and I actually get a packet by Lisgar and the half packet f...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: ANGST (Andy's Non-Guerrilla Summer Tournament)

People at UTS, while I don't need your packet immediately, I'd like to get a scope of approximately how much you guys can write- do you think you'll be able to get an enitre packet done, or a half packet? Please let me know ASAP. In order to have time to edit, I'm going to put a tentative deadline ...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: ANGST (Andy's Non-Guerrilla Summer Tournament)

UTS is definitely coming; we have 4 people, and possibly a fifth would like to come as well. Do we need to put together a pack? Thanks!

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: ANGST (Andy's Non-Guerrilla Summer Tournament)

Hey,
Just wanted to let you know that UTS already has a full team planning to go... we e-mailed Andy a while ago but got no reply. Anyway, we haven't written a pack, but we could probably put one together if need be.
