Subject: centre slice table
From: ronald.fletterman@t-online.de (Ronald Fletterman)
cubologist proper remember how much time and effort was spent in
generating the table of all maneuvers, concerning one outer slice of
the 3x3x3 cube.(the so-called upper table). John F. Jarvis seems to be
the first to have published the table (in 1983), but his maneuver
lengths challenged the brothers dockhorn to get the max length down to
16 moves (1 move equals either a 90 degree or 180 degree face
turn). upto now, little attention has been paid to the centre slice
table per se. digging into my files, i found a study by herbert
kociemba, including the centre slice maneuvers. to me, it belongs to
the files of every cubologist; ref. the attachement, which can be
opened by owners of kociemba's cube explorer. rgds
