It is a small graph that serves as a useful example and counterexample for many problems in graph theory. The Petersen graph is named for Julius Petersen , who in 1898 constructed it to be the smallest bridgeless cubic graph with no three-edge-coloring. [ 1 ...

No Moods, Ads or Cutesy Fucking Icons (Reloaded).: Iterating Towards Bethlehem

No Moods, Ads or Cutesy Fucking Icons (Reloaded). Begin #content Begin #main Begin .post Most of you probably know about Turing machines : hypothetical gizmos built of paper punch-tape, read-write heads, and imagination, which can — step by laborious step — emulate the operation of any computer. And some of you may be old enough to remember the Sinclair ZX-80 — a sad little personal computer so primitive that it couldn't even run its video display and its keyboard at the same time (typing would cause the screen to go dark). Peer into the darkness between these artifacts, stir in a little DNA, and what do you get? This hairy little spider right here . A pinpoint brain with less than a million neurons, somehow capable of mammalian-level problem-solving. And just maybe, a whole new approach to cognition. This is an old story, and a popsci one, although I've only di...

St. Petersburg paradox - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

CentralNotice St. Petersburg paradox From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation , search This article includes a list of references , related reading or external links , but its sources remain unclear because it lacks inline citations . Please improve this article by introducing more precise citations. (October 2013) The St. Petersburg lottery or St. Petersburg paradox [ 1 ] is a paradox related to probability and decision theory in economics . It is based on a particular (theoretical) lottery game that leads to a random variable with infinite expected value (i.e., infinite expected payoff) but nevertheless seems to be worth only a very small amount to the participants. The St. Petersburg paradox is a situation where a naive decision criterion which takes only the expected value into account predicts a course of action that presumably no actual pers...

All-pay auction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

CentralNotice All-pay auction From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation , search In economics and game theory , an all-pay auction is an auction in which every bidder must pay regardless of whether he wins the prize, which is awarded to the highest bidder as in a conventional auction. In an all-pay auction, the Nash Equilibrium is such that each bidder plays a mixed strategy and his expected pay-off is zero. [ citation needed ] The seller's expected revenue is equal to the value of the prize. However, some experiments have shown that over-bidding is common. That is, the seller's revenue frequently exceeds that of the value of the prize, and in repeated games even bidders that win the prize frequently will most likely make a loss in the long run. [ 1 ] Forms of all-pay auctions [ edit ] The most straightforward form of an all-pay auction is a Tullock auct...
