Trial 13 of Fata Morgana


This post checkpoints the third “figure 8” nice loop generated by the FM exocet, and follows up on the first, the exocet trial Cnp13

FM 36 ANLAs to the homework, Yesss! It happens again. The FM exocet defines the endpoints of two X-chain ANL that link together at the ends to form a luxuriously long nice loop

Were you tempted to go ahead with the Cnp13 case?

You really could have. I wouldn’t mind.

 

 

FM 13 nice loopUnless you just joined us, it goes pretty well. First, we color the two directions of the nice loop. We have a major result right away, so obvious I missed it at first. Got it?

 

Yes, two orange candidates in the crossing of the loop is a color wrap. Red candidates are true, in the 13 trial, that is.

No, thanks. If there is a solution here, that makes it at least two. I think that our chance of discovering an undiscovered multiple in the famous Fata Morgana is too teeny weeny to bother with. I don’t play the lottery either.

So do you want to wring out the Cnp16 nice loop on your own? Be my guest, but you only have one week.
