## Is Knight tour a problem?

The knight’s tour problem is an instance of the more general Hamiltonian path problem in graph theory. The problem of finding a closed knight’s tour is similarly an instance of the Hamiltonian cycle problem. Unlike the general Hamiltonian path problem, the knight’s tour problem can be solved in linear time.

**Is there a closed knight’s tour on a 5’5 chessboard?**

The knight alternates between black and white squares. After 25 jumps it cannot be on the starting point because it has to be on a square of opposite color. Originally Answered: Why can’t a knight visit all the squares of a 5 by 5 chessboard?

### Is it possible for a knight to tour a chessboard visiting every square exactly once and returning to its initial square?

### Is it possible for a knight to move around an 8×8?

**For which N is there a closed knight’s tour on a 4 N chessboard?**

THEOREM 4.2 Open knight’s tours exist on all 4×n boards, with n > 2, except the 4×4. (b) On the 4×4 board there are four half-tours, as shown below, but since their inner ends are all on the a-file, or after 180° rotation on the d-file, no two can be linked by a knight move to complete a tour.

## Did Euler play chess?
