A compressive sensing approach to solving nonograms
MetadataShow full item record
A nonogram is a logic puzzle where one shades certain cells of a 2D grid to reveal a hidden image. One uses the sequences of numbers on the left and the top of the grid to figure out how many and which cells to shade. We propose a new technique to solve a nonogram using compressive sensing. Our method avoids (1) partial fill-ins, (2) heuristics, and (3) over-complication, and only requires that we solve a binary integer programming problem.
