3. (forward to cube-lovers if necessary) I hear there is a textbook

on group theory using Rubik's Cube for all its examples (or some such

gimmick). Have you heard anything about it?

...

Not I. Anyone else? I'd be interested in seeing this myself.

There was a book published a few years ago which had one chapter

dealing with the cube.

Groups and Geometry - Peter Neumann, Gabrielle A. Stoy, & E. C. Thompson

The Mathematical Institute - Oxford University

The last chapter is "The Group Theory of the Hungarian Magic Cube".
