# Color Cube Meets Rubik’s Cube

I have made a half dozen blog posts about Rubik's Cube so far this year. And, during the MATLAB Central Mini Hack in October, I resurrected an old code about the Color Cube. Now, a combination of the two, Rubik/Color Qube, creates an elegant tool for investigating Matrices in Action.... read more >>

# Trio, A Wooden Puzzle from the Czech Republic2

"Clever Toys" is a puzzle company in the Czech Republic. Their Web site describes five different hand-made, wooden puzzles that are related mathematically to the Rubik's Cube.... read more >>

# Rotation Matrices3

The matrices in the following animations are at the heart of computer graphics. They describe objects moving in three-dimensional space and are essential to MATLAB's Handle Graphics, to Computer Added Design packages, to Computer Graphics Imagery in films, and to most popular video games. Many modern computers contain GPUs, Graphic Processing Units, which are optimized to compute the product of these matrices.... read more >>

# Digital Simulation of Rubik’s Cube with Qube2

This blog post describes Qube, my Rubik's Cube simulator. Source code for Qube is now available in one single file from this link: Qube_osf.m. I will also submit the code to the MATLAB Central File Exchange. As usual, I welcome any feedback.... read more >>

# Digital Simulation of Rubik’s Cube1

Rubik's Cube is one of the great mathematical puzzles of all time. Most people are just interested in solving Rubik's Cube rapidly, but deeper investigation reveals a rich mathematical and computational structure. A digital Rubik's Cube simulator provides a laboratory for the study of linear algebra, group theory, data structures and computer graphics.... read more >>

# The Enigma Qube, Merging an Enigma Machine and a Rubik’s Cube2

An Enigma Machine combined with a Rubik's Cube makes an encryption device with unprecedented power.... read more >>

# Serendipity, Kuramoto, Colleagues and Backslash

Alexa tells me that the definition of serendipity is "the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way."... read more >>

# A Mesmerizing Animation1

A Mesmerizing AnimationWe are working on a paper about the Kuramoto model of self-synchronizing oscillators. This animation shows the different initial conditions where six oscillators fail to... read more >>
