## SudokuPX (SudokuP + Diagonal)

For fans of Killer Sudoku, Samurai Sudoku and other variants

### SudokuPX (SudokuP + Diagonal)

.
A SudokuPX grid has all of the properties of a SudokuP grid, plus diffent values along both diagonals.

I counted these some time ago, but never got around to posting the results.

These grids have far fewer PX-preserving transformations (morph options), in fact as far as I can tell we are reduced to the normal dihedral symmetries, namely transpose and rotation, so there are only 8 morph flavours, none of any interest. Perhaps blue can uncover some!

• there are 133,747,300 different SudokuPX grids (up to relabelling the digits)
• for PX-equivalence under the 8 PX-preserving transformations, we simply enumerated them explicitly and determined the number of PX-different grids as 16,724,358
• for S-equivalence, ie essentially different in the normal Sudoku-equivalence sense, we don't really know. I will leave the ED count calculation as an exercise for Serg

The main question here is the minimum number of clues. We know 12-clue puzzles have been found for SudokuX so the chances are good that we'll find 10-clue, maybe even 8-clue SudokuPX puzzles.

Given the low numbers of grids involved, and that my HS engine is currently in pieces on the garage floor, I invite blue and champagne to perhaps provide an answer to this question.

There are more ... 32 in all.

• there are 133,747,300 different SudokuPX grids (up to relabelling the digits)
• for PX-equivalence under the 8 PX-preserving transformations, we simply enumerated them explicitly and determined the number of PX-different grids as 16,724,358

I can confirm both of those numbers.
For the 2nd one, when all 32 transformations are employed, the ED/"PX-different" count drops to 4,208,450.

For the missing transformations:
• there's a factor of 2, from the transformation that swaps bands 1&3 and stacks 1&3, or alternatively from the transformation that swaps rows 1&3, 4&6, 7&9, and columns 1&3, 4&6, 7&9.
• there's a factor of 2 from the "E" transformation -- swapping rows 2&4, 3&7, 6&8, and columns 2&4, 3&7, 6&8.

### Re: SudokuPX (SudokuP + Diagonal)

A couple of early results for SudokuPX:

1. B8 is not only an 11 clue puzzle for SudokuP it is also an 11 clue puzzle for SudokuPX :

......7.9.......3..6...2............6..............8.........1........4.7...8.... 123456789457891236968372451571948362689523174234617895895234617312765948746189523

2. I've found three 10 clue puzzles for SudokuPX :

1.2........3..............4.4.......56..7...........2..8......................... 192564738453817296876293154249356817568172349731489625985621473624735981317948562
1.2........3..............4.4..5.....6..............1..7...........8............. 182435697493678251756291384241359768867124539539867412974516823315782946628943175
1.2........3..4...........5.5..6.....7..............1..8......................... 142536798593784261867291345251369874478125639639478512985617423316842957724953186

The trick to all this is to use the 11 clue SudokuP puzzles as a likely source of good things in SodokuXP. This intuition has born fruit :

The first puzzle was found by noting that O2 minus it's last clue 1.2........3..............4.4..5.....6..7...........2..8......................... has exactly 2 SudokuXP solutions :

192534678453687192876192354349251867268379541517468923785923416924816735631745289
192564738453817296876293154249356817568172349731489625985621473624735981317948562

From this information numerous 11 clue SudokuXP puzzles can be found, with one 10 clue puzzle in the mix. The second 10 clue puzzle is just O1 minus its last clue and the third is O3 minus its last clue.

### Re: SudokuPX (SudokuP + Diagonal)

A quick run through all 14 11 clue SudokuP puzzles has revealed 2 more 10 clue SudokuPX puzzles :

.2.45..........13........6.....9...........7............7..............5......... 123456789756289134984731562375694218641528973298173456537962841462817395819345627 B1 minus last clue

PS - I've also quickly checked the F, G and E transforms of the 11 clue SudokuP puzzles, and it appears that E(X) is ESPX (X) but F(X) and G(X) are EDPX(X).

eg E(O2) minus one of its clues has exactly 2 SudokuPX solutions and by exchanging corresponding clues as in the untransformed case you get a 10 clue puzzle as for O2 with exactly the same solution signature, so it's probably a PX morph of the first 10 clue puzzle.

The result is 1.....2.....4........8...........3..5..67.....................4.....2............ 157963248238451967964827513482519376513674829679238451821795634746382195395146782

Found 1 more 10 clue SudokuPX puzzle, to bring the total to 7, although I suspect no 6 is ESPX to no 1. Here they all are, with an indication as to how I found them.

So where to from here for this project ? Do we institute an exhaustive search for more 10's, with the possibility of finding 9, or even fewer, clue puzzles ?

### Re: SudokuPX (SudokuP + Diagonal)

.
For SudokuP we see many thousands of 12-clue puzzles, but only tiny numer of 11-clue puzzles.

I've been running the Morph Walker (the ghost who walks!) in SudokuPX mode. It has found 2000 11-clue puzzles so far, but every one is minimal.

This suggests that we might have a similar scenario, namely that 10-clues is the limit, and that there are not very many of them.

In which case Leren's 10-clue finds are all the more remarkable.

So I think we need to do a rigorous HS search for 10-clue puzzles, which would also prove/disprove non-existence of 9-clue puzzles.

### Re: SudokuPX (SudokuP + Diagonal)

I also found many minimal 11's when looking for the 10' s. Perhaps someone would be kind enough to convert my 10's results into minlex format, similar to what was done for SudokuP.

This should also confirm whether or not results 1 and 6 are ES or not. I suspect that they are.

I don't have a SudokuPX CF function, so I compared the grids with the SudokuP CF function:

Code: Select all
`192564738453817296876293154249356817568172349731489625985621473624735981317948562 # 23050009142536798593784261867291345251369874478125639639478512985617423316842957724953186 # 20226364182435697493678251756291384241359768867124539539867412974516823315782946628943175 # 20226364123456789756289134984731562375694218641528973298173456537962841462817395819345627 # 15264367294386571657149832138752496813427659426598713975613284762935148381274965549861327 # 53535252157963248238451967964827513482519376513674829679238451821795634746382195395146782 # 23050009123756984456289731789134562375641298694528173218973456537462819962817345841395627 # 15264367`

So 1 and 6 are the same, same for (2 and 3), (4 and 7)

Here are the (PX-)canonical forms for Leren's puzzles and thier solutions.

(1) and (6) are identical, as predicted.
(2) and (3) have PX-isomorphic solutions.
(4) and (7) are PX-unrelated.

### Re: SudokuPX (SudokuP + Diagonal)

OK, so far we have 6 EDPX puzzles solving to 5 EDPX grids. I've now automated the 10 clue puzzle search process on a pattern common to many of the known puzzles.

Here is a list of all 82 apparently different 10 clue SudokuPX puzzles from that search. Whether the puzzles and/or grids they solve to are EDPX from the others, or there are any errors, I'll leave to the minlexing experts to determine.

<Edit> I've just discovered a bug in my 10 clue PX puzzle searcher and am re-running the job. The number of 10 clue puzzles will be much larger, so the minlexers can hold off if they want until I complete the new run, in a day or so.

Confirmed.

I rebuilt my PX catalog using these 32 PX-preserving transformations, and I got the same number.

### Re: SudokuPX (SudokuP + Diagonal)

I've been working with Mathimagics who is identifying the ED 10 clue SudokuPX puzzles and solution grids I have found. So far the count is 358 ED grids, 430 ED 10 clue puzzles.

This is work in progress and the counts will be inching up daily. When we have had enough we will make the puzzle list available to others for checking. And no, I haven't found a 9 clue puzzle yet, but I live in hope !
