# A New Way to Organize COLL

#### Christopher Mowla

I have analyzed the different COLL Cases, and I have organized them into a table which might help some people out who might be intimidated with it at first glance, just as I did for OLL at:

Of course (as others pointed out for my table of OLL), the algorithms may not be grouped together such that the algorithms are related, but I am certain that this table is very well organized as far as the cases go.

I have also described how many of the cases are from odd parity, and how many are not.

All other information is provided in the document (attached).

I call this the "Periodic Table of COLL Algorithms" because it also has dashed lines which separated a subcategory of cases as well as a solid line which separates another group of cases from the rest. This makes the table all the more efficient to find the corresponding algorithm for a case.

Unlike all other COLL tables which I have seen, this table helps you identify F much faster for cases when there is not 2 of the same color. As a matter of fact, I made the table so that, once you rotate your cube to match the orientation case of the cube, F will always be the color in the top right. The table has been designed to make up for the fact that, from other tables F is identified when there is 2 occurences of it.

The algorithms provided are not mine, however, the source is provided. I have made all of the figures and the table though.

Lastly, I have provided a table with gray as a general table (for those who understand that it is not necessary to have 4 tables to do COLL) but I have also made the time to do 4 different tables with each color (especially for those who have never seen COLL before). Best of all, for those who already know COLL or who are learning different algorithms, I have provided blank tables so that you can write in your own algorithms, etc.

I hope you like it. Please comment.

LOVE IT!!! You have the same organization as I do and the same recognition for Sune and Anti-Sune. However, I list 4 stickers for every case. I also placed the <R,U> algs first and went off of that.

Some of your algs are very nice, too. Gonna have to steal at least one...

Wow. I was the only reply before that. This is a great way of doing COLL, though 4 stickers is sometimes easier to learn at first. I did this with my Sune, Anti-Sune, and L recognition and it greatly improved. Your algs are very nice, as well. I stole at least one.

One reason people haven't looked at this is that COLL is not all that popular.

That's because people generally think that OLL/PLL > COLL/EPLL, and by the time many people have finished learning the OLLs and PLLs they think COLL is unnecessary, which it is, I suppose.

Also, some cases just don't have any nice algorithms. :/ However, the increased number of PLL skips and H perms is lovely.

but then I get Z-perms and I'm like

When it comes to 2H solving, Z perms are ♥.

But yeah, in OH it's FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU!!!

NO! I ♥ Z perms. I don't like the CW edge cycle.

You crazy. My CW one is better than my CCW.

I will edit this post once I've read the document
