Deck Manipulation Through Perfect Shuffles

Western Oregon University
Talk Abstract
Perfect shuffles on a deck of cards perfectly interleave the cards. Out-shuffles leave the top and bottom card in the same positions, while in-shuffles do not. When in and out shuffles are combined, a card can be moved from any place in the deck to any other position the shuffler desires. This presentation will explore the algorithm that makes this possible.
