    $\begingroup$ When you say 3x3 and 4x4, do you mean 9x9 (standard) and 16x16 (what's in the title)? $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Sep 12 '19 at 16:32

    $\begingroup$ Of possible interest is Wikipedia's "Mathematics of Sudoku" section Sudokus of other sizes. $\endgroup$ – Weather Vane Sep 12 '19 at 19:50
