Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

Rubik’s cube is an intelligence icon. We will meet some people who can solve it blindly, with only one hand, or in less than 10 seconds. It is also a tool for learning math. With it we will understand combinatorial and geometry.
Speakers Berta García, Pedro Luis Muñoz, Sergi Sàbat, Nuria Pérez and David Ruscalleda, Cubist fans, Natalia Medialdea, mathematics teacher at the Turbula school, and mathematicians Claudi Alsina from the Department of Structures in Architecture (UPC) and Enric Ventura Department of Mathematics (EPSEM – UPC).

The mathematician Enric Ventura from the Department of Mathematics (EPSEM – UPC) explains to the reporter of Quèquicom Pere Renom the mathematical property called conjugation, and how is used to solve the Rubik’s cube.
