Modular magic sudoku

John Lorch and Ellen Weld

Vol. 5 (2012), No. 2, 173–186
Abstract

A modular magic sudoku solution is a solution to a sudoku puzzle with symbols in $\left\{0,1,\dots ,8\right\}$ such that rows, columns, and diagonals of each subsquare add to $0\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}9$. We count these sudoku solutions by using the action of a suitable symmetry group and we also describe maximal mutually orthogonal families.
