Rubik's Cube: Solved, once and for all!
Presented by The Mathematical Association of Victoria
in association with Museum Victoria.
Dr Burkard Polster, Sunday, 15 August 2010
Can you solve the Cube? And no, reading and copying a recipe definitely does NOT count!
How can you actually find such a recipe? How can you solve the cube in 10 seconds? How can you solve it blindfolded? How would God solve it?
Sound interesting? Then don't miss out on this talk, where all will be revealed. Burkard "CubeMeister" Polster will answer these questions, and will explain how mathematics is behind all the answers.
Burkard Polster is a maths lecturer, and Monash University's resident Mathemagician, mathematical juggler, origami expert, bubble-master, shoelace charmer, and Count von Count impersonator. When he is not doing fun mathematics he has fun investigating perfect mathematical universes.
