Submission + - Equation for perfectly parking your car found! (

ctrl-alt-canc writes: An english mathematician, Simon R. Blackburn was asked from Vauxhall Motors to study the math beyond car parking. The problem is not new, since some cars appeared on the market years ago with a self-parking option.. Dr. Blackburn recently published a paper that gives a complete solution to the problem of perfect parking. I wonder if his research will bring to more room for cars in our crowded parking lots. Who will write the first Iphone application for perfect parking ?!?

Use the Force, Luke.
