Talisman Hexagon


An (n,k)-talisman hexagon is an arrangement of nested hexagons containing the integers 1, 2, ..., H_n=3n(n-1)+1, where H_n is the nth hex number, such that the difference between all adjacent hexagons is at least as large as a number k. The hexagon illustrated above is a (3, 4)-talisman hexagon.
