In this talk, we present the notion of an x-logjam, where x is a vector of n integers. The set of x-logjams can be thought of as a structure similar to the order ideal (under the partial order of majorization) of x. We explore some combinatorial and number theoretic aspects of these structures, and how some random experimentation led to an interesting conjecture.
