Hi Amartyanil;

The seven bridges of konigsberg is an amazing problem first investigated and solved by Leonhard Euler.

Didn't know there's an MIF page on it

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Nope. Atleast sphider doesn't get it.

We do not have a page about N-Queens either

Sorry, I did a nice post on non attacking rooks which is harder. I got confused.

There is tons of stuff about it on the internet. I can probably answer any question you might have on it.

It sure is, I have the definitive work on such problems.

OK. Would you explain a code?

You mean a program?

Yes. From here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eight_queens_puzzle

```
from itertools import permutations
n = 8
cols = range(n)
for vec in permutations(cols):
if (n == len(set(vec[i] + i for i in cols))
== len(set(vec[i] - i for i in cols))):
print vec
```

Hi;

It uses a method of generating all the permutations like the M code does at Rosetta. Unfortunately, I do not understand what the heck he is doing.

I read somewhere that it filters out the solutions from the Rook problem

That is correct. Then it only has to check like a bishop. Off course there is a little more to that routine.
