algorithms to solve rubik's cube algorithms to solve rubik's cube I typed this up to show as an example of an ALGORITHM. What is below is all based on Dan Brown's youtube videos. Notation: -------- F = Front side of cube (facing you) U = Upper side L = Left side R = Right side D = Down side green side = side with green in center white side = side with white in center etc... center piece = piece in center of a side corner piece = pieces at the corners edge piece = not center or corner pieces Algorithm Notation: ------------------ F = turn front side clockwise by 90 degrees F' = turn front side counter-clockwise by 90 degrees U = turn upper side clockwise by 90 degrees U' = turn upper side counter-clockwise by 90 degrees 2U = turn upper side by 180 degrees (clockwise or counter-clockwise...it doesn't matter) R = turn right side clockwise by 90 degrees (clockwise, as if you were facing it) R' = turn right side counter-clockwise by 90 degrees etc... 1.
