However, these algorithms are very useful when considering developing software to solve sudoku grids. This will be the topic of Chapter 5. – The results presented here are part of a well-known tool in the constraint programming community: the alldifferent constraint. For more information, see the chapter Global constraints and ﬁltering algorithms written by Jean-Charles R ÉGIN in the book Constraints and integer programming combined edited by Michela M ILANO and published by Kluwer in 2003, which gives more detail on involved algorithms.
In the next chapter we will solve very difﬁcult grids, but, before that, it is worth having a closer look at the rules presented in this chapter. 3. Intrinsic properties of subset based rules The two sets of rules that we have presented are strongly related. We have seen this when answering exercise 21. We will now explicitly exhibit this relation, and we will also show that all these rules are subsumed by a more powerful and general rule. 1. Subset-based rules duality Let R be a region with p non-assigned cells.
It is now your turn! 7. Reductio ad absurdum at work E XERCISE 32. 7. – Rules and techniques that are presented in this book and that perform some reasoning on a given region are all applicable in the speciﬁc context of kakuro (see page 21). Obviously, other techniques may be considered in order to take into account the information regarding the sum of the value on a given region of such a grid.
