The Theory Behind the Game Set

Hi everyone,

Come celebrate Pi Day with some pizza, soda, and a great talk! This week, Jennifer Koonz will be speaking about the theory behind the game Set. There should be some time at the end of the talk to play Set ourselves!

  1. I asked my son, a former math grad student, whether he had ever heard of “Set” before (since I hadn’t). He replied that he had learned it from an algebraist friend who explained that it’s just searching for linear subspaces of a 4-dimensional vector space over Z/3Z.

    And he passed on a problem: what’s the largest number of cards you can have that don’t contain a set?
