Here’s a little Christmas Present for Mischa – a Labyrinth to celebrate the auspicious year of your birth, 2005.
Postscript, 2.7.2014. I forgot to explain that this is Chinese Lattice Labyrinth (41,18), chosen because the sum of the squares of 41 and 18 equals 2005. You 2005’ers could also be represented by the fellow family member (39,22), whose sum of squares also equals 2005. It isn’t very common for there to be the two possibilities, indeed for many birth-years, including the present year, no lattice labyrinth can be constructed – see the “Can I do it?” post.
Both the 2005 Lattice Labyrinths are very easy to construct, employing a general rule for drawing the complementary or missing-links graph which works for all (a,b) except for cases where b is zero or a and b share a common factor.
