I confirm 27692 ED patterns of the 27+6+3 case after "40 maximal patterns list" filtering. (I attached my list of filtered patterns to this post.)
Code: Select all
Distrib. Patterns   Filtered

3+6+27     61,079     27,692
4+5+27     90,897     52,267
3+7+27    155,054     77,289
4+6+27    277,435    210,116
5+5+27    169,258    134,467
5+6+27  1,056,939    977,292
Total   1,810,662  1,479,123
You can see filtering efficiency isn't high in this case.

Hi Serg,

Thanks for having cross checked the magic 40 effect.

In fact, as we can see in your table, the effect is significant mainly with a band of 3 clues.

this is not very positive for the search of 17 through a 27 + X + Y scan.

The scan 27 + 6 + 3 is ongoing for 2 weeks after a bug in my first approach has been fixed. I am expecting a 3 to 4 months search. The new process is faster than the previous one in a ratio between i:50 1:100, but this is not enough to go beyond the 27+X+3.

I am looking something new as well for a search on the catalog, but it is to early to tell what can be the outcome.

The process that I am testing took ideas in that thread
