 May13 comment Non-Constant-Sum Blotto Game for Only 2 Players and 2 BattlefieldsYep, sorry, first time I've seen that notation. I'll mark your $m/\lfloor B/(B-E)\rfloor$ as the answer in a moment. By the way, is there a generalization of this formula to more than 2 players and/or more than 2 battlefields? I’m just looking for the value/utility formula, not a full strategy like you graciously gave here. May13 comment Non-Constant-Sum Blotto Game for Only 2 Players and 2 BattlefieldsThanks. I'm trying to follow this, but you have some mistakes throwing me off. Please take a look at your definition of r and your example's calculation of m (I get m=8/3). May12 comment Non-Constant-Sum Blotto Game for Only 2 Players and 2 BattlefieldsMaybe I shouldn't have used the words "non-constant-sum". All I mean is that the two players start with a non-equal number of total soldiers and use them all ("use it or lose it") on the two battlefields. So, utility is the number of battlefields won (you can say ties are split half-half, so technically the possible utility outcomes are 0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, or 2.0, but tie treatment is not statistically important if there are many soldiers).

I found that this sequence is documented at oeis.org/A023212 and, from the graphs, guess that about 1 in 14 prime numbers might meet this requirement in the infinite limit. But, if primes were truly random, the prime number theorem makes me think that this ratio should go to zero. I'm leaning towards it going to zero.

There are really n labels for permutation because of my pairing. The automorphism then needs to induce the same pairs. If you're curious, this is a practical application for building a network with many inter-communicating IOs from small primitive routers. Apr12 comment “Box Nodes” in Directed Graphs with Paired IO SymmetryEach node has two lines with arrows indicating inward flow and two lines with arrows indicating outward flow; these are the two inputs and two outputs (this should be natural to people familiar with directed graphs). To draw this fast, I didn't show arrows on some lines, but please consider all lines to have a flow arrow. Both of my examples have 3 inputs and 3 outputs which are unconnected which can be itemized in pairs by writing in1, out1, in2, out2, in3, out3. Box is more like "black box" where this whole construction is like a node with many inputs and outputs.
