If Black accepts the gambit , White has two main plans. The first is to play d4 and Bxf4, regaining the gambit pawn with central domination.

Coastline paradox - Wikipedia

CentralNotice From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigation Jump to search An example of the coastline paradox. If the coastline of Great Britain is measured using units 100 km (62 mi) long, then the length of the coastline is approximately 2,800 km (1,700 mi). With 50 km (31 mi) units, the total length is approximately 3,400 km (2,100 mi), approximately 600 km (370 mi) longer. The coastline paradox is the counterintuitive observation that the coastline of a landmass does not have a well-defined length. This results from the fractal -like properties of coastlines, i.e., the fact that a coastline typically has a fractal dimension (which in fact makes the notion of length inapplicable). The first recorded observation of this phenomenon was by Lewis Fry Richardson [1] and it was expanded upon by Benoit Mandelbrot . [2] The measured length of the coastline de...

Cyclomatic complexity - Wikipedia

CentralNotice From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation , search Cyclomatic complexity is a software metric , used to indicate the complexity of a program. It is a quantitative measure of the number of linearly independent paths through a program's source code . It was developed by Thomas J. McCabe, Sr. in 1976. Cyclomatic complexity is computed using the control flow graph of the program: the nodes of the graph correspond to indivisible groups of commands of a program, and a directed edge connects two nodes if the second command might be executed immediately after the first command. Cyclomatic complexity may also be applied to individual functions , modules , methods or classes within a program. One testing strategy, called basis path testing by McCabe who first proposed it, is to test each linearly independent path through the program; in this case, th...
