A Recourse, a Game, an Experiment.
DIE UNGARISCHE METHODE (The Hungarian Method)
How can mathematical descriptions used to depict everything from simple processes that can be experienced in practice to highly complex events in the universe be made understandable today? How might it be possible today to convey an important mathematical tool, the Hungarian method, to an interested public by means of art?
The selected mathematical algorithm generally stands for the depiction of ever more complicated processes, like climate change, population growth, economic crises, that increasingly determine our everyday life and whose widespread understanding will be decisive for questions of the future of civilization. The Hungarian method, also called the Kuhn-Munkres algorithm, is an algorithm for solving weighted relationships between the members of two sets. (Peter Lang)
