Source: Sent to me by Pritish Kamath ( http://www.mit.edu/~pritish/ ) Problem: Have you ever played "SET"? You have to play it. http://www.setgame.com/learn_play http://www.setgame.com/sites/default/files/Tutorials/tutorial/SetTutorial.swf Even if you have not played the game, the game can be stated in a more abstract way as follows: There are 12 points presented in F 3 4 and the first person to observe a "line" amongst the 12 given points gets a score. Then the 3 points forming the line are removed, and 3 random fresh points are added. Problem 1: How many points in F 3 4 are needed to be sure that there exists a line among them? Problem 2: Given 12 random points in F 3 4 , what is the probability that there exists a line among them? Disclaimer: We have not solved the problem yet. It can be very difficult or very easy. Update (22/12/14): It turns out to be a very very difficult problem. Paper: http://www.math.rutgers.edu/~maclagan/p
