Description
Sheep and Wolves
In this math circle talk, we'll look at placing sheep and wolves on a grid so that none of the sheep get eaten. We'll find different arrangements and try to figure out the maximum number which can be placed on a board of given size and generalize it for an arbitrary board. We will also discuss how this relates to a field of mathematics called combinatorics.
