four knights puzzle
On a 3 × 3 chessboard are two white knights at the top left-hand and top right-hand squares and two black knights at the bottom left-hand and bottom right-hand squares. The four knights puzzle is to exchange the black knights with the white knights in the minimum possible number of moves. One move is a normal knight's move on any vacant cell of the board, which renders the center square inaccessible.
