Cube Spaces

Filed under: General,Geometry — Tags: — m759 @ 11:30 AM

Cubic models of finite geometries
display an interplay between
Euclidean and Galois geometry.

Example 1— The 2×2×2 Cube—

also known as the eightfold  cube

2x2x2 cube

Group actions on the eightfold cube, 1984—

Version by Laszlo Lovasz et al., 2003—

Lovasz et al. go on to describe the same group actions
as in the 1984 note, without attribution.
 

Example 2— The 3×3×3 Cube

A note from 1985 describing group actions on a 3×3 plane array—

Undated software by Ed Pegg Jr. displays
group actions on a 3×3×3 cube that extend the
  3×3 group actions from 1985 described above—

Ed Pegg Jr.'s program at Wolfram demonstrating concepts of a 1985 
note by Cullinane

Pegg gives no reference to the 1985 work on group actions.
 

Example 3— The 4×4×4 Cube

A note from 27 years ago today—

As far as I know, this version of the
group-actions theorem has not yet been ripped off.
