Max number of clues

Postby giant » Sun Dec 11, 2005 11:32 am

Some times ago I stated the following question:
Is there any information about sudoku with the maximal number of clues
such that removal of anyone of those makes the sudoku
unsolvable??
Dukuso was kind enough to make an extensive searech and found an example with 32 clues. Does someone found another, larger example?

Red Ed: You say "35 is definitely doable."
Any arguments for your statement? For example a grid with this property?

Oops, no, sorry. Got confused with the maximal atomic hitting set question (for which the biggest example I've seen has size 35).
