Looking for her for million times ¡
(The process to solve the 16th
That afternoon, I rewrote the program.
In spite of its complexity, I kept on thinking hard. As I had not had a good
rest, I felt so tired that my head ached seriously. But I was still considering
the problem while I was taking a rest. Finally the program was executed
successfully, and the result came out soon. Then I checked the result. Eureka!
All the 16 rows met the requirement, and I couldn¡¯t control my excitement. As an
ancient Chinese poem goes:
I look for her for million times. When all at once I turn my
head, I find her there where lantern light is dimly shed. (An ancient Chinese
poem written by Xin Qiji
After adjusting the 16 rows, it¡¯s as easy as winking to adjust 16
columns and the diagonals. However, as I didn¡¯t take a rest at noon, I was still
afflicted by headache. Then I thought I needed a good rest.
In the evening, after a rest of several hours, I felt a little
better, and I went on arranging the 16 columns of the matrix. The following
morning, when I told Prof. Chen the exciting news, he was so happy that he
couldn¡¯t helps jumping. He came to the campus in the morning against his own
rule, and we immediately wrote a program to search the diagonals.
Those who work hard will be rewarded£¡A
month of painstaking work had not been done for nothing. After working day and
night and surmounting so many difficulties, we got a perfect result at last.
