  • Georges Perec used and order 10 graeco-latin square for the powerful set of constraints at work in La vie mode d'emploi [amazon.fr] ( Life a user's manual [amazon.com] ).

    But I thought that graeco-latin squares did not exist for every value of n? After a little digging around with Google, I found that graeco-latin squares do not exist for n=3k.

    • Yeah, I've read it. In fact I've read almost all what Perec published. Except Les Revenentes, completely unreadable.

      AFAIK there are graeco-latin squares for every n>2, n!=6. See the links provided in my mail. -- The real challenge is actually to figure out a good combination of configuration options.
