Errors in Sudopedia

Postby Maq777 » Wed Mar 31, 2021 10:58 pm

Reviewing the information about the Shidoku in the Sudopedia I found the following errors

http://sudopedia.enjoysudoku.com/Shi_Doku.html

The first one is the count of essentially different puzzles
---Error: 4800 essentially different puzzles
---Correction: 4710 essentially different puzzles

The second error is in the counting of the problems
---Error: 13,581,312 valid puzzles of which 85,632 are minimal
---Correction: 13,579,680 valid puzzles of which 85,632 are minimal

The third error is in the first column (#1) of the following table where the final result must be 41401
---Error:

It's true, but you should have a look at the following posts of Ed Russell = Red Ed and Sourendu Gupta = sg (2006)
You will find all the right numbers.

Greetings JPF

Here it is seen that they corrected the total of the column, but they did not correct all the data of it.

The total is 41.401 and that is fine, but the calculations for clues 4 and 5 are still wrong.

Just notice in case they want to correct, since they are the obligatory reference of all of us who are now working and investigating on this.
