Insolvable Configurations of Peg Solitaire

Christina Moorhead*, Western Oregon University (Undergraduate Student)
Talk Abstract: 
Peg solitaire is a board game that has been played and studied for many years. Examination of the game offers an opportunity to explore a practical application of group theory. Through the use of the Klein Four Group, the insolvability of different board configurations will be examined. We will also explore variations of the game using alternate rules in order to fully understand the game of peg solitaire.
