Nyt Sudoku |The New York Times Games: If we start sudoku, there is no way we stop it. The riddles of these puzzles seem to shut down the mental device, encapsulating one’s capabilities in a strictly restricted universe — a range of 9 to 9, filled in with numbers 1 to 9 according to specific rules carefully. This enclosure affects me hypnotically. According to Publishers Weekly, there are 23 books on sudoku in print, with an overall turnover of 5.7 million copies.

 Sudoku puzzles are included in newspapers as a way for them to compete for readers. And there’s sudoku. Internationally, websites and forums are proliferating. For example, 22 countries were featured at the first World Sudoku Championships in Lucca in March, Italy. A 31-year-old Czech accountant was the winner. According to the Independent of London, the sudoku craze has resulted in a 700 percent increase in pencil sales.

In November, British Airways issued a memo prohibiting cabin crews from working on sudoku puzzles during takeoffs and landings. Naturally, the international appeal stems from the fact that solving sudoku puzzles does not necessitate the use of any language or mathematics. An 81-square grid with about 20 squares of filling is given to a puzzler (the “givens”).

This large grid divides into nine three-by-three grids. The main thing is to fill the blanks in each row of nine cells and each column of nine cells so that each row of nine cells and each column of nine is finished. When puzzles like Sudoku appeared anonymously first in 1979 in the journal Dell Pencil Puzzles and Word Games with the twist of mini-grids within a broader array, they were titled Number Place. Will Shortz, the puzzle editor of The New York Times, revealed the authors’ identity with an argument of a Sudoku style when a puzzle is included in Dell’s publication – and not at all. Otherwise, Howard Garns, an Indianapolis architect who died in 1989, has on the contributor’s list.

On the other hand, mathematicians are becoming more interested in Sudoku — not so much to solve the puzzles to learn more about themselves. Eric W. Weisstein cited research publish in Math World, an online mathematical journal, demonstrating that sudoku puzzles can have a total of 6,670,903,752,021,072,936,960 complete grids. Still, only 5,472,730,538 unique grids remain once equivalent solutions eliminate. Many of these studies, however, are concerned with the number of sudoku possibilities. Each puzzle draws a single solution from a vast array of options by using the simplest of elements combine with the simplest of rules. Thus, the puzzle is a reduction and elimination exercise.

We often collect information when resolving a puzzle as we work towards a response. For example, something is calculating or manufacturing. A crossword puzzle’s words must draw from personal experience.

But only nine squares are available, and work involves eliminating the impossible, filtering everything that doesn’t fit — for instance, excluding number 4 for a specific court if an In the same line, column, or mini-grid, four appears. As a result, Sudoku doesn’t open up to the world but limits it, forcing all foreigners to be discarded. Technology is not math: we know what to produce; the problem is we have nothing to get rid of.
