This is really the only deduction that can be done. Indeed, not encountering a contradiction does not mean that the selected value is a good one: the contradiction may happen later. 7. No rule can be applied. Thus, consider cell (8, 2) and candidate 2. Suppose that this value is assigned to the cell. 1 on column C7 ). But, then, the only candidate in cell (4, 9) is a 4. 1 for row R9 ). There is then no more candidates in cell (6, 4). Therefore, cell (8, 2) cannot be assigned value 2. The right value to be assigned is therefore 1.
1. The hidden pair technique Consider a given region. If there are two values that have the same possible cell position of only two, then all other values are forbidden for these two cells. Indeed, if any other value is assigned to one of these cells, one of the identiﬁed values will have no possible position in the region. This would not be acceptable. 6. 5, values 7 and 9 on column C7 are candidates in only two cells. All other values may be removed from those two cells. – Inferring such information is useful because other rules may apply.
5. member is predeﬁned predicate in P ROLOG. 1. A 4 × 4 sudoku grid – on the other hand, the uniqueness property should be globally veriﬁed for the remainder of the region. This is another important property of logic programming: recursivity (a predicate calling itself) which is the computer science counterpart of mathematical recurrence. Finally, the grid is represented with the list of its 16 cells. , unique([C33,C34,C43,C44]). - sudoku([ 3, C12, 2, C14, C21 , C22, C23, 1, C31, C32, C33, C34, 4, 2, C43, C44]).
