This sounds like a version of the "golfer problem" -- given a bunch of people, break them into groups of (n) such that no two people are in a grouping more than (k) times. The idea is to keep you playing with some new blood each round. Look at the recreational math newsgroup; there ought to be something there. Received on Mon Jun 16 2008 - 11:42:46 CDT
