Researchers from MIT, the University of Waterloo and Tufts University have established the relationship between the number of squares in a Rubik's-cube-type puzzle and the maximum number of moves required to solve it. The team's evidence provides an efficient algorithm for solving a cube that is in its worst-case state. The researchers showed the maximum number of moves required to solve a Rubik's cube with N squares per row is proportional to N2/log N. "That that's the answer, and not N2,...
