Analysis of the picture cube puzzle. (English) Zbl 1304.05068
Summary: We give a mathematical model for a game that we call picture cube puzzle and investigate its properties. The central question is the number of moves required to solve the puzzle. A mathematical discussion is followed by the description of computational results. We also give a generalization of the problem for finite groups.
