Birds on a Wire Revisited - Demonstration

A discussion of the birds on a wire problem with a list of print references for severaal versions of the probem statement. This demonstration simulates birds on a wire and shows all mutual neighbor pairs with different colors. Estimated probabilities for the number of birds that are a part of a mutual neighbor pair are shown. The number of birds can be varied from 3 to 100. The number of dimensions can be varied from 1 to 3. Mutual nearest neighbors are share the same color. This demonstration has the mathematical solution with no explanation of how it was derived.
