didn't know it was an english university study, but I've heard of it as well, and can say it is very true, either in italian or in english :lol:

I'm giving up for today!
There are only 4 definite cells and no clue as to what sequence they inhabit. :cry:
I may try again tomorrow ...

Batty

You got r3c1=9 and r3c9=8 didn't you?
So r4c1=1 and r4c9=3
So c7r6&7=9/8, 8/9
So c6r6&7=3/1, 1/3

In c9 the only possible place for a 9 is in r1 or r9. Therefore the middle cell r5c5 can't be a 9 & r9c1 can't be a 9. Check the diagonals for where 9s can go.

pooh, I can get about two thirds done, and then I encounter problems.

Can you confirm that r8&9 c7-9 = 20?
I also have a problem with the diagonal at the top left duplicating a number.
The top left hand has a 3 cell combination that equals 21, which has to be 867, which must be entered as 8/6, 6/8 in r1 & 7 in r2 c1 (due to r1 c8 & 9 = 7&9). As 6 has been input in r9 c9, and 8 is in r7 c7, entering either 8 or 6 in r1 c1 will be a duplication.

Why is there an 8 in r7c7?
If r9c9 is 6, then r7c7 is 9

c7r6&7=9/8, 8/9


For the solution to r4 c2 4 cells = 32, I have 976532. r4 c1 =1, and r6 = 5/4/8.
Therefore I cannot put 8 in c7r6, so c7r6&7 = 9/8.
