I'm working on modernizing Rosetta Code's infrastructure. Starting with communications. Please accept this time-limited open invite to RC's Slack.. --Michael Mol (talk) 20:59, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

User talk:Arjun sunel/Solvability of a 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube State?

From Rosetta Code

WTF?[edit]

This article seems to not be totally uninteresting but should it really be on Rosetta-Code?? Isn't that some kind of elaborate spam? --Grondilu (talk) 12:11, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

I would make a page Rubiks Cube which explained the cube and it motions: including a naming scheme for each square, a scheme for describing moves. As children of that I would add tasks based on Rubik's Cube which can be solved by a computer. Three suggested here are: Permutation Parity Test; Corner Parity Test; and Edge Parity Test. I think each of these would be worthy of a task in their own right, and others could be added.--Nigel Galloway (talk) 13:31, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
If there is interest in this then understanding how these rules extend into 4 dimensions as an attempt to visualize and solve 4D Rubik Cubes is even more interesting.--Nigel Galloway (talk) 13:36, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
I only noticed when I checked the Recent Changes, the title of this section is unacceptable.--Nigel Galloway (talk) 13:38, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Simple task description[edit]

A simple draft task description could be "Demonstrate how to randomize and solve a Rubik's cube puzzle showing an appropriate representation of the cube during operation."

Just link to Wikipedia or another appropriate online resource for the description or a Rubik's cube.

We could probably display two images: one showing front, top, and left side, the other showing back, bottom and right side (giving a view of all six sides), or have a rotary view according to face being manipulated as methods of display, although there are several methods that could be used.
