Spelling with element symbols from the Periodic table

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/11

The [WayBackPeriodic table – Wikipedia contains many symbols.

Combing them allows you to spell word. Not all words, but many of them can be spelled.

So I was glad finding the below article that started with the same fascination I had in chemistry class.

It has a great explanation of the algorithm, references to computer science literature and a nice Python implementation.
