The Math Of The Optimal Where's Waldo Search Pattern

February 11, 2015


These are some of the charts and graphs created by Michigan State University computer science graduate student Randal S. Olson (links to his page with waaaay more in depth information) showing the quickest way to spot Waldo in the seven main Where's Waldo books. You know, why is it my responsibility to find Waldo anyways? I don't even know him. I don't care where he is or what he's doing. Besides, if you want to find Waldo the quickest every time you don't even need math, you just need to point anywhere and yell, "There he is!" and turn the page before anybody can prove you wrong. Now that's some real math.

Thanks to Alicia, who agrees those Magic Eye books are where it's really at anyways.
