Red vs. Blue Reconstruction 16

Frequently Asked Questions...

Question on ordered/disordered arrangments and symmetry?

Example: 32 balls, 16 red and 16 blue are arranged randomly in a 4x8 grid. What constitutes an ordered or disordered arrangment? Does disorder imply that it can have neither rotational nor reflected symmetry? Also, will there be more ordered or disordered arrangements? I'm pretty sure I know this: it takes more work to arrange an ordered setup than disordered, correct?

Best Answer...


Yes, ultimately it is a question of work: that ordered systems need more work to establish or maintain.
It is actually quite a complex area, since what one might consider as scrambling can produce very complex ...ooops... patterns!
