The Chinese Rings
In this chapter, we will discuss the mathematical theory of the CR which goes back to the booklet by Gros of 1872 . This mathematical model may serve as a prototype for the approach to analyze other puzzles in later chapters. In Section 1.1 we develop the theory based on binary coding leading to a remarkable sequence to be discussed in Section 1.2. Some applications will be presented in Section 1.3.
