Title: Infinite Chess and Other Combinatorial Games
Speaker: Christoph Kesting
Location: HH 312
Abstract: We all have played combinatorial games like Chess, Checkers or Tic-Tac-Toe at some point in our lives. We will take a mathematical look at these kinds of games and explore what happens when we play them on an infinite board using the example of Infinite Chess. In particular, we will be looking at mate-in-n Problems and generalize them for (almost) infinite play.
