B Lonely Runner Conjecture

  1. Dec 18, 2016 #1
    With the lonely runner conjecture, can the runners run along a circular track of any diameter or does the conjecture require that they run along a unit circle?

    The track does not have to be a circle, and, although the standard formulation has the track of unit length, it can be scaled to any length track.
