Occam's ringleaders

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A puzzle known as Occam's razor was described by Dr. Ecco in his omniheurist corner. He explained with an example of stock-trading events on 11 stocks that the authorities believe are collusions in purchases and sales of stock. There are a few ringleaders who perform actions and then their subordinate conspirators compute a particularly simple logical/arithmetic function to decide on their action. The two circuit elements AND and ODD were used to solve the puzzles and were based on 1 or 0 principle.
