Hi;

Thanks for the link.

Did you like the algorithm?

What is your favorite algorithm?

That is easy, PSLQ but as my brother says "any that get the right answer quickly."

I do not know, I thought you were asking in general. Cryptarithmetic problems are best solved using the techniques phrontister and I use.

What techniques are they?

The algorithm in this paper is quick and gets the answer correctly.

Something like the Force?

The force or more commonly called chi or prana is everywhere.

It is not an algorithm, it is the reset button.

It is the self correcting factor.

Maybe but she is not saying much right now.

Going offline to eat, see you in a bit.

Were you able to write up the algorithm in M?

I would want to use Python for that.

M can do anything that python can do.
