(Avatar Picture: Contour plot of $\Re \left[ \boldsymbol e^{(a + b\boldsymbol i)^2 / 2} \right] $)

My name is George Williams, and I am a Computer Science major at the University of Berkeley, with a minor in Mathematics.

I enjoy problems involving combinatorics, approximations, and heuristics.

This is the explanation which I originally came up with. I was thrown off by $l = b_i + 1$, since Bob already knows $b_i$ (and by extension, can find $l$). So what does $A^\prime_{il}$ mean?
