Taking sudoku seriously : the math behind the world's most popular pencil puzzle by
Jason Rosenhouse(
)
18 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How many Sudoku solution squares are there? What shapes other than threebythree blocks can serve as acceptable Sudoku regions? What is the fewest number of starting clues a sound Sudoku puzzle can have? Does solving Sudoku require mathematics? Jason Rosenhouse and Laura Taalman show that answering these questions opens the door to a wealth of interesting mathematics. Indeed, they show that Sudoku puzzles and their variants are a gateway into mathematical thinking generally. Among many topics, the authors look at the notion of a Latin squarean object of longstanding interest to mathematiciansof which Sudoku squares are a special case; discuss how one finds interesting Sudoku puzzles; explore the connections between Sudoku, graph theory, and polynomials; and consider Sudoku extremes, including puzzles with the maximal number of vacant regions, with the minimal number of starting clues, and numerous others. The book concludes with a gallery of novel Sudoku variationsjust pure solving fun ..."Publisher description

Sequences of spiral knot determinants by
Ryan Stees(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Spiral knots are a generalization of the wellknown class of torus knots indexed by strand number and base word repetition. By fixing the strand number and varying the repetition index we obtain integer sequences of spiral knot determinants. In this paper we examine such sequences for spiral knots of up to four strands using a new periodic crossing matrix method. Surprisingly, the resulting sequences vary widely in character and, even more surprisingly, nearly every one of them is a known integer sequence in the Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences. We also develop a general form for these sequences in terms of recurrence relations that exhibits a pattern which is potentially generalizable to all spiral knots
