Re: Rubik's Cube Abstracted

Hi MathsIsFun;

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Good page but what the heck are they talking about?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Rubik's Cube Abstracted

They are talking about an n-dimensional abstarction of the magic cube. If you do not know that then why are you asserting that it is a good page?
