I’ve been considering a variant of domino reduction (or HTA) feasible for Fewest Moves. It solves the cube into some steps:
orient edges in multiple axis (let’s say FB and LR);
solve all edges along with some corners;
complete the cube with corner commutators.
To solve edges, one can build a...
Have you ever considered the probability of getting a random state cube solvable optimally with n moves? Well, I have. Since normal probability are not that readable when talking about cube, one can picture the scene with exciting coin flips.
The chance you get a cube that can be solved with 10...
I'm pretty sure this is a new method and I'm not the inventor of it. I'm going to make a material on it and I thought the idea should be published here (for brainstorm, sharing and giving the proper credits). The inventor is Gabriel Dechichi Barbar and it's already explained here (portuguese)...
I'm learning commutators just now (switching from OP to corners). I already know how it works: setup, change, undo, undo or A, B, A', B'. I was having problems figuring out which sticker should go first and where. I came up with a system that helps in that. I discussed it with some...
Are you familiar with online judge system for programming?
Some examples: SPOJ, Codechef, UVA, URI.
This report is about SPOJ. One thing that I like about SPOJ is that if you fill some requirements, you can create your own Problems for others to solve and a custom judge (which is optional for a...
I developed a software, which I call Cubik World, to generate scrambles and keep track of statistics. Since I love statistics and I like to see graphics and other stuffs, I decided to create this program. It's basically for personal purposes, but I decided to share.
Download from here...
Does anyone know an open software that provides random state scramble in the WCA standard? I know tnoodle would be the best choice, but it is hard to understand. There's no such thing like 'getScramble("puzzle")' or internal documentation.
As a vacation projected I'm writing a software to generate scramble and control time. You can download it here.
Any suggestion will be helpful :)
