Because of the natural correspondence of sequential alphabet lists of letters to positive integers, many non-english alphabets have a strong link to number sequences. The Hellenic (Greek) letters offer a numeric code that can be used to vary Sudoku puzzles.
In reviewing the connotations of this alphabet and its relation to Mathematics (and Statistics), I discovered several interesting sites:
- Learning The Greek Alphabet In 10 Minutes (a youtube.com 9 minute film)
- Greek Letters Used in Mathematics
- The obsolete letter Digamma, which is the original 6th letter of the Greek Alphabet
Since I used the Font Face MMa Greek Bold, it automatically translated the number 6 into a right-to-left flipped 3. The original Digamma was more like an F or f. Go figure (so to speak).
This puzzle is considered more than medium difficulty, but if you have become facile in manipulating 9 symbols, the essence of the Sudoku logic should produce a solution sooner than later.
