I started to think about mazes after reading Jamis Buck’s excellent series of posts, and found that mazes lead quite directly to some interesting mathematics and some remarkable algorithms. So I’d like to share some of that here.

To whet your appetite, here is an exhaustive list of the 3×3 weave mazes:

I may or may not do it all on this site. Ideally I would like to post some interactive demos, which isn’t possible here.
