CoMath Seminar
Strategy Stealing Games

Dr. Matthew Coppenbarger
School of Mathematics and Statistics
Rochester Institute of Technology

In combinatorial game theory, a strategy-stealing argument shows that, for a two-person game, the first player has a guaranteed winning strategy. The argument was invented by John Nash in the 1940s to show that the game Hex is always a first-player win. The main discussion of the talk will be on two games, Chomp and Bridg-It. Some additional games may be discussed.
