### graphing results of sudokus

hello i was wondering if anyone has tried graphing the results of sudokus in a way that we can find a pattern or relationship. this is for a math fair project, and so far i have no luck in finding any relationships.

also is there any other area of sudoku a high school student can explore and obtain sufficient information for a math fair? thanks

Depends what you mean by a graph. You could try studying unavoidable sets, and the distribution of MCNs. See this post which has a graph

and lots of others on the minimum clues thread.

Is this anything like you're asking about?:

This is posted on flickr. All pictures on flickr should include a link so you can go to it here:

The image represents the workings of:
Code: Select all
`1 . . 8 . 5 . . 4 . 2 . . 6 . . 9 . . . . . . . . . . 8 . . . . . . . 6 . 6 . . . . . 2 . 4 . . . . . . . 5 . . . . . . . . . . 1 . . 9 . . 6 . 5 . . 4 . 7 . . 8 `

I have also wondered if anyone can use the mathematics of sudoku to make anything like the images that come from fractals

(sorry I'm so late to reply. I hope you didn't get an F on your math project)
