Motivating geometrical structures used to understand distributed computing via the famous blue eyes puzzle



Last week I had made a video trying to motivate countable topologically interesting geometrical structures that are of relevance to understand mathematical models applicable to the formalization of properties of distributed computation systems.

On the base of that puzzle I elaborate on is the concept of common knowledge.

You find the relevant links of the things I speak about in the description of that video. For example, the link to the Amazon page of the relevant distributed computing math textbook I got the picture I drew from.

I intend to make more videos along those lines, although most won’t be as fun-and-play as this one. I got a playlist on Constellation on my youtube channel and they also include relevant related content, such as this one where you get some insights on how to use GitHub:
