Books : Misc. Educational : English Adventures in Group Theory: Rubik's Cube, Merlin's Machine, and Other Mathematical Toys 2nd Edition Author: David Joyner The Johns Hopkins University Press 2008-12-01 ISBN: 0801890128 328 pages PDF This updated and revised edition of David Joyner's entertaining "hands-on" tour of group theory and abstract algebra brings life, levity, and practicality to the topics through mathematical toys. Joyner uses permutation puzzles such as the Rubik's Cube and its variants, the 15 puzzle, the Rainbow Masterball, Merlin's Machine, the Pyraminx, and the Skewb to explain the basics of introductory algebra and group theory. Subjects covered include the Cayley graphs, symmetries, isomorphisms, wreath products, free groups, and finite fields of group theory, as well as algebraic matrices, combinatorics, and permutations. Featuring strategies for solving the puzzles and computations illustrated using the SAGE open-source computer algebra system, the second edition of Adventures in Group Theory is perfect for mathematics enthusiasts and for use as a supplementary textbook. From the preface: This book grew out of a combined fascination with games and mathematics, from a desire to marry 'play' with 'work' in a sense. It pursues playing with mathematics and working with games. In particular, abstract algebra is developed and used to study certain toys and games from a mathematical modeling perspective. All the abstract algebra needed to understand the mathematics behind the Rubik's Cube, Lights Out, and many other games is developed here.
