    In this paper, we consider the following sliding puzzle called torus puzzle. In an m by n board, there are mn pieces numbered from 1 to mn. Initially, the pieces are placed in ascending order. Then they are scrambled by rotating the rows and columns without the player's knowledge. The objective...

    We determine the eccentricity of an arbitrary vertex, the average eccentricity and its standard deviation for all Sierpiński graphs $${S_p^n}$$. Special cases are the graphs $${S_2^{n}}$$, which are isomorphic to the state graphs of the Chinese Rings puzzle with n rings and the graphs...

    We say that a random sequence is spreadable if all subsequences of equal length have the same distribution. For infinite sequences the notion is equivalent to exchangeability but for finite sequences it is more general. The present paper is devoted to a systematic study of finite spreadable...
