comment Splitting a sandwich and not feeling deceived
@KevinFegan There goes the "not feeling deceived" part. If different pieces have different (subjective) values, there is no solution.

"easiest possible solution, assuming the players are honest". If not, then there is no solution.

If each piece has a different value for every player, and the value is unknown to the other players, then there is no solution at all (not even for the simple case of 2 players).

Actually, C has to wait for A and for B to cut/choose, but A "loses" just as much as C.

I think it's just too complex. If player 1 doesn't accept the first portion, and player 2 does, there is something wrong, unless you count other factors (getting a smaller portion instead of waiting longer).

comment Relative spherical coordinates of 2 points.
I'm currently working on augmented reality, and our current approach involves a lot of approximations, and conversions (and loss of precision). If we could get the points in the viewer's coordinate system, calculations would be much easier / faster.
