We discuss a Sudoku-like puzzle worked over by several mathematicians from Harvard and MIT, the “Wide Partition Conjecture.”

In this talk we survey what is known and present some ideas for how to tackle the conjecture. This talk will be very low on new results and is IDEAL FOR UNDERGRADUATES (as well as everyone else).
