Subject: Re: Rubiks tangle
Your concept is theoretically extendable to the 10*10 tangle, but even
with this optimisation the puzzle would take a long time to solve. How
long do you take for the 5*5 Tangle on your computer?
I am sorry to say I haven't implemented the search yet.
The 5x5 is solved, so that isn't that interesting anymore; the 10x10
has such a huge search space, that it will need a very efficient
algorithm and/or clever representation. I just haven't decided on the
representation yet. I did decide on the search order though.
