Deterministic Rendezvous, Treasure Hunts, and Strongly Universal Exploration Sequences

Amnon Ta-Shma, Uri Zwick
2014 ACM Transactions on Algorithms  
Both the rendezvous and the treasure hunt problems motivate the study of universal traversal sequences and universal exploration sequences with some strengthened properties.  ...  We call such sequences strongly universal traversal (exploration) sequences. We give an explicit construction of strongly universal exploration sequences.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Oded Goldreich for a discussion that led to the definition of the treasure hunt problem.  ...
