Previous cube state -> L5EP step -> Next cube state

The L5EP step is the step between the Previous cube state and the Next cube state.

Last 5 Edges Permute, often abbreviated L5EP, is a 3x3 subset that solves the 4 U-layer edges and the down-front edge simultaneously while preserving all other pieces.

The five affected edges must be correctly oriented for L5EP to work. L5EP is often used in methods like Petrus-W and Portico, when there are only five edges left to solve on the cube.

There are 16 algorithms for L5EP, 10 excluding mirrors and 7 excluding mirrors and EPLL.

Any case can be simplified to an EPLL by moving the DF edge into the front and inserting it with M' U2 M. Intuitive L5EP can be used, but it is recommended to learn algorithmic L5EP due to the faster execution and low number of algorithms.
