Meanders by Patrick Friel

A meander is an alternative representation of an acceptable row sequence for a simple alternating transit maze, where the numbers indicate the order of the crossings of a curve through a line. Friel worked on the problem of counting meanders, and created a program to visualize meanders and test integer sequences for acceptability as meander patterns. The user interface is shown here. More information is available in the Summer Institute 1993 reports.
