I guess that's on an algorithm to always solve the cube in at most 44

moves. Is that right? Is that the best known algorithm (best = has

minimum maximum number of moves)? Singmaster gives a broad outline of

Thistlethwaite's algorithm in his "Notes on Rubik's 'Magic Cube'".

That algorithm would always solve it in 52 moves, and I know that has

been improved to 50 moves. Is this new algorithm something like

Thistlethwaite's algorithm or is it working in a different way?
