The thought just struck my mind, while I was reading "The art and craft of problem solving", whether a game of chess can be topologically defended and is topologically invariant. For example a game play where only the pawn has been moved to E3 is some sort of topological figure and the initial game situation is another topological figure. Will the two be topologically invariant? By game situation I mean some arrangement of pieces on a board . Any thoughts...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
