Robot archery (w/ Jane Street's December 2021 challenge)
After a grueling year filled with a wide variety of robot sporting events, we have arrived at the final event of the year: Robot Archery. Four robots have qualified for this year’s finals, and have been seeded in the following order:
Robot tug-of-war (w/ Jane Street's August 2021 challenge)
The fourth post in my series of Jane Street puzzles; previous solves can be found here, here and here.
Double binary search (w/ Jane Street's June 2021 challenge)
This was definitely the most difficult Jane Street puzzle I have solved so far. You can find solutions to previous Jane Street puzzles I’ve solved here and here.
Dynamic programming with probabilities (w/ Jane Street's April 2021 challenge)
Three months ago, I wrote an article about Jane Street’s January challenge. Continuing in the same vein, I decided to write about this month’s Jane Street problem: Bracketology 101.
A guide to backtracking (w/ Jane Street's December 2020 challenge)
Backtracking is an important concept in computer science and can be used in many different applications. There are many guides on the internet where backtracking is explained with relatively simple problems (n-queens, sudoku, etc.). In this a more challenging problem will be considered, and the intuition you might develop solving it.
