Last Thursday the mathematicians hijacked our Algorithms Late Night Thursdays series. Instead of math being conveniently enslaved by computer science to do computer science stuff, the mathematicians ganged up on us and turned things the other way around.
Premise We were inspired by the Algorithm Meetup featured this week on Robot Paths in a Lattice Graph! Imagine an n by m grid with a robot in the upper left square. If the robot can only move right or down,
