It is wellknown that there is a trio of “threesided dice” A, B and C, with the following property. Â If A and B are rolled, then the probability that the number showing on die A is greater than that on die B is strictly greater than 1/2 – A beats B – while similarly B beats C and C beats A. This observation may seem to lie purely within the realm of recreational mathematics; my aim in this talk is to explain how examples of such “nontransitivity” lead to some interesting mathematics.
