Abstract

One of the possible applications of Group Theory is the Rubik’s Cube. The Rubik’s cube is a physical structure that demonstrates and reflects some of the foundation properties of groups. We will examine this famous structure, its physical and qualitative properties, and use the Superflip example to show how the Rubik’s cube can be solved using Group Theory.
