Regular expressions are capable of calculating more than most people expect them to. In this presentation we will show how the popular Sudokus can be solved using regular expressions. Given a Sudoku, we will construct a regular expression that, after matching, yields the Sudokus solution in $1, $2, $3, etc.

We will also look into solving other (Japanese) logic puzzles using regular expressions.
