The Fall 2012 MATLAB Contest is inspired by the game Planarity. But it was also inspired by the problem of the Gordian Knot. The problem is this: Given a deranged hairball of a knot, can you untie it?
In more software-friendly terms, the problem can be restated as this: Given a list of points and their connectivity as supplied by an adjacency matrix, move them around so that the lines do not cross.
Our contest will run from 16:00 UTC Wednesday, 31 October through to 16:00 UTC Wednesday, 7 November. Join the contest fun, and compete with the best programmers from all over the world!
Good luck everyone!
