Definitions

**Columns -**A series of vertical, evenly-spaced points.**Corner -**A point in a maze where the path takes a 90 degree turn.**Corner Point -**Any point in a maze that satisfies exactly two of these conditions: Has one or more points above, below, to the left or the right of it.**Decision Point -**Any point in a maze that satisfies the following conditions: A point that is not an endpoint; A point where a possible path may proceed in more than one direction.**Derived Endpoint -**An endpoint that, through either flipping the maze horizontally and/or vertically one or more times, matches an original endpoint.**Derived Path -**A path that does not use both an original start point & an original endpoint and, through either flipping the maze horizontally and/or vertically one or more times, matches an original path.**Derived Start Point -**A start point that, through either flipping the maze horizontally and/or vertically one or more times, matches an original start point.**Determined Decision Point -**A decision point where the start point and the endpoint were established before the creation of a path.**Duplicate Path -**A path that uses the same original start point & original end point as an original path but may be flipped and/or turned to match that original path.**Edge Column -**The first or last column of a maze.**Edge Point -**Any point in a maze that satisfies exactly three of these conditions: Has one or more points above, below, to the left or the right of it.**Edge Row -**The first or last row of a maze.**Endpoint -**The last point in a path.**Interior Point -**Any point in a maze that satisfies all four of these conditions: Has one or more points above, below, to the left or the right of it.**Maze -**A series of evenly-spaced points that are arranged in rows and columns that has one path from the start point to the endpoint.**Original Endpoint -**An endpoint on a maze that is representative, either through flipping the maze horizontally or vertically one or more times, of the position of other points on a maze.**Original Path -**A path that starts at an original start point and ends at an original endpoint.**Original Start Point -**The leftmost & topmost start point on a maze that is representative, either through flipping the maze horizontally or vertically one or more times, of the position of other points on a maze.**Path -**A series of connected segments that begin at the start point of a maze, ends at the endpoint & sequentially connects all of the points in a maze.**Point -**A place in a maze where a directional decision must be made.**Row -**A series of horizontal, evenly-spaced points.**Segment -**A line that is drawn orthographically (vertically or horizontally) from one point to the next nearest point.**Start Point -**The first point in a path.**Template -**A diagram of a maze that depicts one or more start points and every possible endpoint of that/those start points.**Undetermined Decision Point -**A decision point where the endpoint has yet to be established while a path is being created.**Unicursal maze -**A maze that has only one path.
