Knight's Tour on Rectangular Chess Boards by Markus Feng '21, Mathematics Colloquium

Knight’s Tour on Rectangular Chess Boards by Markus Feng ’21, Mathematics Colloquium, Monday, March 1, 1:30 – 2:15 pm, talk can be accessed through the Mathematics Colloquium Glow page

Abstract:  A Knight’s tour on a chessboard is a sequence of moves for a Knight chess piece that lands on each square of the chessboard exactly once, before returning to the starting square.  In this talk, I will present which sizes of rectangular chess boards contain a Knight’s tour, and use graph theory to prove why Knight’s tours exist on some of these boards but not others.
