MATLAB Programming Contest, v10.0

Roughly every six months we run a MATLAB programming contest in which contestants are encouraged to steal the code that other people are submitting. Naturally, most people steal code from whoever’s leading, which makes the code churn and improve very quickly. This version of the contest, number ten, involves giving instructions to ants so they can maximize the amount of sugar they bring home. The contest ends on Wednesday; stroll over and check out our ants > Mid-Contest Analysis” href=””>mid-contest analysis.
