Rubik CubeThis link was actually shared by roniman but I did not know how cool it was until my uncle gifted me a cube yesterday. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: Rubik CubeI find the comutators and prmutators method quite interesting. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #4 20131230 22:21:27
Re: Rubik Cube
What does this mean?
What are they? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #5 20131230 22:46:24
Re: Rubik CubeYou can find about them on the net and there is even a post here on MIFF about them.

Re: Rubik CubeWhere is that post? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Rubik CubeSorry, I wrote permutators instead of conjugates.

Re: Rubik Cube
I have a move that just swops edge A with edge B; and edge C with edge D. Another will do A  > B > C You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #9 20140102 05:01:31
Re: Rubik CubeDid you discover them yourself or did you learn from someone? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Rubik CubeNo I didn't discover them although I'd like to have the time again to do that. They came from the Singmaster book. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #11 20140102 15:25:46
Re: Rubik CubeCould you please provide that hint? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Rubik CubeThat was a very nice explanation but I do not know where to begin. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Rubik CubeOK. Bigger hint: You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
