As I told you previously, my project for the summer was to learn some Python language. I’ve been toying with it for a bit and with a few lines of code I was happily getting output. It’s great that I don’t have to declare types before using variables! And it took me a while before I realized that indentation substitutes for all the curly brackets. So far, I find it rather intuitive.
So in the end this is what my computer printed to a file:
Your job, if you decide to take it, is to tell me how that sequence of numbers was generated.
WARNING: To tell me how that thing was generated you need a lot of statistical analysis of the data.
And for those of you who have no clue what research is like, this ‘puzzle’ will really give you a hint of what it feels like to be clueless and trying all kinds of stuff.
Incidentally, I think this would be a great project for a class on data analysis.
