DESCRIPTION:Although instructions for Sudoku in the press ofte
n say "There's no mathematics required"\, in fact
there are many mathematical connections\, going ba
ck to Euler. I will start off by explaining how th
e ingredients of the puzzle came to be developed b
y mathematicians. Sudoku is closely related to Lat
in squares\, which have applications in statistics
and cryptography. I will also talk about a varian
t of Sudoku due to Robert Connelly\, whose analysi
s involves other parts of mathematics such as affi
ne geometry over finite fields and error-correctin
g codes.
