Yoseph Ben Mattithyahu (Titus Flavius Josephus)

Posted by ubpdqn on April 3, 2011

I was motivated by the locker puzzle to revisit a problem attributed to Josephus.  There are a lot of useful resources exploring this.  The post Josephus provides some links and some musings.

If you are ever in a circle of people where alternate person either choosing suicide or being killed till there is only one… I hope you number a power of 2, and if this is so, choose  to be first in the circle.
