21, which also shows that two vertically “adjacent” beads (because of the row in between, they do not actually touch) are exactly 2N + 1 beads apart. Bracelets without a structural twist, which we call structurally aligned, are those whose total number of beads is an exact multiple of 2N + 1. All other bracelets have a Exploring the Bead Planeâ•‡ ●â•‡19 structural twist. It’s easy to see whether or not a bracelet has a structural twist if you view it in its entirety in vertical layout form. If it is structurally aligned, there will be a complete double row at the top.

23–24]. There are a couple of ground rules that make Guthrie’s question more precise. First of all, two countries that touch at a single point are not considered to share a border. 1 are allowed to have the same color. Second of all, each country must consist of a single contiguous region. For instance, in a map of the world, Alaska would be considered a separate country from the continental United States for coloring purposes. These rules clearly simplify the map-coloring question, but they also make it more interesting.

185) and Diamond Zigzag (p. 153). 21â•‡ The vertical separation between beads. Two beads that are vertically “adjacent” are 2 rows apart and separated by an interval of 2N + 1 beads in an N-around bracelet. In this case, N = 5, so 2N + 1 = 11. an N-around bracelet alternate between N and N + 1 beads. Two consecutive rows, which we call a double row, will therefore always contain exactly 2N + 1 beads. The offset between beads in consecutive rows means that the bead directly above a given bead will be two rows up—or equivalently, one double row up.
