Sudoku is a popular number puzzle. A 9 by 9 grid is presented, containing some pre- defined numbers. The task is to fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9.

This notebook presents a Sudoku solver.

The short Mathematica program recursively applies rules for deducing the missing values until the puzzle is complete.
