Dear all, I have a list of numbers (A),in fact, they are numbers distributed over [0,1]. Given parameter \epsilon, I have to choose elements from A such that their distances are larger than \epsilon, so the elements are "distringuishable". My goal is to find the maximum number of elements from A to meet the above "distinct criterion". How to do it with the functions build-in in mathematica ?? Thanks in advence. Sincerely Barrow
