    Default Project Euler

    Have any of you solved problems on the website http://www.projecteuler.net?
    If so, how many and what do you think of the problems presented on the site?

    Default Re: Project Euler

    Interesting site. A lot of them are related to number theory (which makes sense as Euler, Goldbach, and Fermat were known number theorists). Yes, I have solved a small fraction of them (or proven them). A fun exercise to program is Euler's line using graphics and Java. Check the web for a description. It is not listed on the site because it is not something you can keep track of or submit proof of a solution. I may try some of these in the future.

    I also solved a few of those problems; some of them need a bit of cleverness or else you're bound to an exhaustive search through the problem's search space; none of the problems are particularly Java related ...

    kind regards,

    Jos made a good point. None of the problems are Java related (or really computer science related). They may be fun to solve or exercise the brain but I would focus on understanding linked lists, hash tables, trees, sorting algorithms, design patterns, threads, etc. There are implementations or applications of all of these in the Java SDK. But to me it is interesting and rewarding to implement them (or in the case of design patterns or threads, apply them). And it will probably serve you better in the long run.
