Dear Mike:

Yes, there is an algorithmic approach to solving your problem. The solution is

16   2    3   13
 5   11  10    8
 9   7    6   12
 4   14  15    1 

which I picked up from a russian text. However, an explanation also appears in the following two books:

  1. M.Gardner, Time Travel and Other Mathematical Bewilderments
  2. Ya.I.Perelman, Fun with Maths and Physics

Best regards,
Alexander Bogomolny
