Sorry, I don't understand.

coloin wrote:Can we say there is no duplicates in 7@r2c3 min lex grids ?

No, Red Ed gave duplicate isohex grids with 7@r2c3 (index* = 70,45,69,148,...; index** = 133,068,131,225,...)

* with index416.exe
** gsf's index

gsf,

I edited the post -- thanks

here are then band populations

001-099 ~1hr per band
200-299 ~20min per band
there's a better algorithm lurking but sometimes brute force works faster than gray matter
edit: all bands accounted for and sum to 5472730538 (phew)

Doest it mean that the band #1 is (at least once) in 1007170 min-lex grids ?

Thanks.

a mouse snarf and/or post size limit
I edited the first to contain 001-199 and the next post will have 200-416

the list I posted is ordered by row-order min-lex canonical representation
they are partitioned by the row order min-lex bands 001-416
because of how min-lex grids and bands are defined there are a few assertions one can make on the list
for band 001: there are exactly 1007170 min-lex grids containing band 001
for band 002: some grids containing band 002 could be in the band 001 count, so there are 25502082 grids containing band 002 and not band 001
so entries for band B account for grids containing bands b >= B
and we end up with band 416 containing the only grid with signature 416,416,416,416,416,416 (the max min-lex grid)
Code: Select all
`123456789457893612986217354274538196531964827698721435342685971715349268869172543`

Fine work by gsf

In trying to estimate the upper limit of 416 codes I made an assumption that a 416 band in B1B2B3 along with another 416 band in B1B4B7 would give essentially the same number of solutions. This is infact true there are only 2865 essentially different B1B2B3B4B7 combinations - however I dont think you can also assume that that they will have the same grid solutions/respective 416 codes.

Couting the duplicates is also rubbish - we cant assume that every grid will have the same number of duplicate grids per coding.

There appears to be many different grids with initial bands 1-31 which have identical codes.
Not so many from 32-onwards - I hadnt appreciated the duplicates in the "isohex" grids...

No, there are a heck of a lot more than that. "Essentially" same/different is a term we've always used to describe ismorphism classes: so there are "essentially" only 416 arrangements of B123 and essentially (don't know, but lots) arrangements of B12347. The 2865 number, on the other hand, is a "gangster" count, like the 44 number: it sees minirows (in B4/7) and minicolumns (in B2/3) as unordered triples, not ordered triples, which makes it a lot easier to put two arrangements in the same class.

the band counting finished
the program counted each of the 5472730538 grids with each one in hand
so this is a different (and much slower) verification of the number of distinct grids
I didn't have the per grid encoder done so I'll have to rerun to build a catalog of all grids
the encoder can get 9 bytes per grid partitioned into files with the same initial band
so the whole catalog would be 46Gi and allow direct indexing to each grid
the largest would be band 006 at 826Mi

generating the catalog by minlex bands is straightforward
start with a band and start filling in values in minlex order
when all values are filled in check if the grid is minlex
if it is then it is one of the 5472730538 grids up to isomorphism
otherwise it has a smaller minlex representation and would be counted either earlier in the
current band or in a smaller band

edit I forgot to mention that filling in the band in the opposite order can
be used to find the max min-lex value for a band -- this is how I posted the min and max
min-lex values for each band way before the total counts came in

this is neat because each grid is esentially compared with itself
there is no direct comparison with previous or future grids
i.e., no need to have a lookup table of all grids to check if the current grid is a dup

Very nice! I've not seen the catalogue constructed directly before. That'll put you in a good position the next time a "what's the most number of X in any grid?" question comes along.

Surprised to see mebibytes and gibibytes in your message. I hope you've not been involved in any lawsuits !

when its done it would be nice to find a host for the 46Gi
I'll post the decoder code in a bit

no lawsuits, but bowing to lawyers of another sort (iso, posix)
it really does make sense, just takes a week or so to get used to

A few months ago I initiated a discussion about minimalization/compression of solution grids in this thread... I wonder if those schemes from RW etc would be helpful to trim this huge size of 46Gi down to xxx Mi's? It'd be much nicer to pack the whole catalogue in less than 700MB or 4.7GB so it can be burnt into a single CD/DVD...

the 46Gi is for each of the 416 bands in a separate file, 9 byte header + 9 bytes (81 bits) per grid
fixing each grid at 9 bytes allows random access given an index from 1 to 5B

if random access is dropped then it can be reduced to ~6.8 bytes (54.2 bits) per grid for a total of ~35Gi

back of the envelope: 5472730538 into 4.7Gi is < 1 byte per puzzle -- none of the discussions ever got that close

well, it turns out we can use a smaller envelope for our calculations ...

as this deals directly with minlex grids I'll hijack the duscussion here

if we're talking about compressing a large grid catalog (and I am: all essentially different grids)
then the discussion to this point has been much too local

let each grid be a minlex record of 81 data bytes, with all records sorted in ascending order
the difference between adjacent grids, especially in the lower bands, is very small on average
coding a compressor to take advantage of the differences can be a big win
burrows-wheeler (bzip2) does this, and does better than gzip, but doesn't take advantage
of the sudoku grid domain
i.e., there are both lexical and functional similatrities between adjacent grids
and off the shelf compressors for the most part only handle lexical similarities well
some of the sudoku specific similarities are
(1) first 28 minlex digits can be represented as 416 bands
(2) the remaining digits can be specified w.r.t. the basic sudoku constraints (~singles)

(1) is a sudoku specific lexical insight
(2) is a functional insight

I set up a coder to compress into windows of 1Mi
data compressed is <band index, #automorphisms, grid> for each grid
early bands compress well just using the sudoku specific lexical similarities and functional info
but it turns out that burrow-wheeler on the sudoku specific coding can get another factor of 2 for the lower (and more populated) bands

here are the number of bytes per grid for a few bands
sudz: sudoku specific coding, sudz+bw: sudz followed by (modified) burrows wheeler
Code: Select all
`bands   grids     sudz  sudz+bw006     96229042  1.66  0.74100     27849953  1.92  1.21150     11577852  2.17  1.44300-416  2097068  3.51  2.78`

more info later, including the sudoku specific coder, when the bands complete
sometime next week

It is easy to see what daj95376/JPF say. It is harder to see that every sudoku grid is isomorph to a grid with the following 18 fixed cells:
Code: Select all
`123|...|...456|12.|...789|...|1..---+---+---.1.|...|......|.1.|......|...|.1.---+---+---..1|...|......|..1|......|...|..1`

The difficult part is to see that we can set r2c5=2.

Proof: First fix the 1's and relabel the numbers in the first box, so that they match the proposed solution, now we want to set r2c5=2.
We analize the possible places to put 2 and 3 in box 2:
1. If r2c5=2, good, we are done.
2. If r2c6=2, then:
2.1 If r3c8=2, then do r123456789 c123456789 -> r132465798 c123789456 and relabel accordingly so now r2c5=2.
2.2 If r3c9=2 then do r123456789 c123456789 -> r231564897 c465798132 and relabel accordingly.
3. If r2c5=3 or r2c6=3 then swap columns 2 and 3 and relabel so now that 3 is a 2, now we are in a case that has been covered in steps 2.1 and 2.2.
4. If r2c5<>2,3 and r2c6<>2,3, then we start again, but instead of fixing the 1's, we fix the 2's and we are done (after that litle work is needed here).

In daj95376/JPF example there are 17 fixed cells, I showed that we can fix 18 cell's. Can we fix more than 18 cells?
