ODLK1 (or lantinsquares) is a project managed by an independent team of volunteers based in Russia. It is performing research with the aim to generate a database of canonical forms of diagonal Latin Squares order 10 (having orthogonal diagonal Latin squares).

ODLK1 is a distributed computing project using the BOINC platform to exchange work-units and results with internet connected computers.

A famous example of Latin Squares is Sudoku where any solution to a Sudoku puzzle is a Latin square. Other applications of Latin Squares are design of agronomic research experiments, error correcting codes and board games [1].

Since last weekend ODLK1 has been included as 27th whitelisted project on the Gridcoin network. Due to the fact that Gridcoin earnings are divided over all projects, the 26 other projects will now receive 1/27 less magnitude, resulting in the 3.5% reduction of earnings per project.

ODLK1 is a CPU-only project and can be executed on systems supporting Windows, Linux and FreeBSD (both 32-bit and 64-bits).

Gridcoin is an open source cryptocurrency (Ticker: GRC) which securely rewards volunteer computing performed upon the BOINC platform in a decentralized manner on top of proof of stake.

BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) is a distributed Internet platform and was launched beginning of 2002 and it rewards participants with credits for performed work. BOINC is an application available for multiple Operating Systems and uses the unused CPU and GPU cycles on computers to perform scientific work.

Thanks for spotting this @hotbit, I have amended it.

So this researches better boardgames and sudoku's? I'm all up for that 😁.



For all interested in Latin squares - I've also done some gridcoin - themed visualisations.

How does it work

Thanks for info
