The 15-Puzzle ?
The 15-Puzzle is a solitaire game created in 1870 in the United States. Its mathematical theory was published by the American Journal of mathematics pure and applied in 1879. In 1891, its invention was claimed by Sam Loyd, when the game knew a considerable interest in both the United States and Europe. It is composed of 15 small squares numbered from 1 to 15 which slide in a frame provided for 16. The goal is to put in order the 15 tiles from any initial configuration.
