This should remind you of your probability classes during college years. Can you solve this problem in 30 minutes? This could make for an interesting job interview question.

**Problem**

Points are randomly distributed on the plane, with an average of *m* points per unit area. A circle of radius *R* is drawn around each point. What is the proportion of the plane covered by these (possibly overlapping) circles?

What if circles can have two…

In one of my previous articles, you can learn the process about how discoveries are made by research scientists, from stating the problem, exploratory analysis, testing, simulations, data science guesswork, all the way to the discovery of a new theory and state-of-the-art statistical modeling,including new, fundamental mathematical/statistical equations.

This is a unique occasion to discover the creative path followed by inventors. Traditional research papers do not explain how a new…
