[cross-posted to chemed-l and phys-l]

I wrote up a discussion of the famous Twelve Coins puzzle,

making connections to fundamental scientific disciplines

such as

-- Design of Experiment (test-vector design)

-- Information theory (entropy)

-- Communication theory (codeword design)

To illustrate the power of the method, I designed a _parallel_

algorithm ... that is, it is not necessary to use the results

of earlier weighings to design the later weighings.
