Refutation of the Lonely Runner Conjecture with Three Runners

Authors: Colin James III

We evaluate the conjecture of the lonely runner with three runners. We do not assume a runner may be stationary as a no-go contestant. The result is that the conjecture diverges from tautology by one logical value and hence is refuted. We then assume a runner can be stationary with result of the same truth table also to refute the conjecture.
