Irrational 2 Population growth appears to be linear with an irrational multiplier. The probability that a MWSS will hit a boat seems to be 1/sqrt(2) for the lower (westward) stream, and sqrt(2)-1 for the upper (eastward) stream. If this is true, then the population in gen t is about (78 sqrt(2) - 73)t/40 for t even, and (82 sqrt(2) - 77)t/40 for t odd. If you can prove any of this, please let me know.
