The Argwill Formula


The Argwill formula, created by Aaron, Ryan and Gordon Willis is a simple formula for solving crosswords. Knowing the rough frequency of each letter in the English language (mainly nouns, pronouns and adjectives) and taking each across and down word, each represented by aword, dword, and uniquely indexed with fnum - with squares shared by two words flagged with an enipse 37*, each is then multiplied by avagadros constant and reversed through the fibbonacci sequence. The remaining (usually) 10 or so digits remaining are to a high degree of accuracy then likely to fit into the corresponding square. This is then done for the remaining squares for each word. Knowing now the number of letters available, it is simply a matter of cross-referencing the enipse and solving the anagram accordingly.
