SICHERMAN DICE: EQUIVALENT SUMS WITH A PAIR OF DICE

George Sicherman discovered an interesting pair of dice whose sums have the same probability distribution as a pair of standard dice, and this was reported by Martin Gardner in 1978. This pair of

Extending Sicherman Dice to 100-cell Calculation Tables

The number of solutions N for an nxn=n^2-cell calculation table is N=(p-2)(p-1)+1, where p is the number of divisors of n.

Are Stupid Dice Necessary?

Summary A pair of 6-sided dice cannot be relabeled to make the sums 2, 3, … 12 equally likely. It is possible to label seven, 10-sided dice so that the sums 7, 8, …, 70 occur equally often. We

Dungeons, dragons and dice

My younger son has become interested in the game “dungeons and dragons”. He is intrigued by the shapes of the dice that are used to play the game and by the number of faces they have. Besides the

Construction of Fair Dice Pairs

An interesting and challenging problem in mathematics is how to construct fair dice pairs. In this paper, by means of decomposing polynomials in a residue class ring and applying the Discrete Fourier
