This is a mathematical jigsaw puzzle! You have a photo cut
into pieces, where is a power of a prime . Therefore it represents the
vector plane over the finite field with elements.
These pieces will be presented to you in disorder, result of a
(hidden) affine transformation of the plane. And your goal is to recover
the image by finding the inverse affine transformation.
You have the right to multiple tries in order to do it.
Recall that an affine transformation is a linear transformation followed by
a translation. All are operations over .
You may play this game even without understanding the mathematics behind.
In this case we suggest you don't go further than
than otherwise the game risks to be very frustrating.
We also recommend another online jigsaw
Shifting puzzle which requires much less mathematical background.
