This algorithm competition allows programmers and math puzzle enthusiasts to compete by writing an algorithm in python to solve a math puzzle using as little "computational cost" as possible.
A python utility is supplied which allows anyone to easily test their algorithm to verify its correctness as well as have its computational cost calculated with some example inputs.
The contest ends on August 31, 2020. The submissions will then be officially tested and the entry which uses the least amount of computational cost to solve some pre-selected instances of the puzzle will be awarded the grand prize (see constest rules for details).
The current prize pool is 2 ETH (approximately $450 USD).
