Comment Math and the Rubik's Cube (Score 2, Informative) 386

David Joyner has a book which explores some of the math behind the Rubik's cube: http://www.amazon.com/Adventures-Group-Theory-Merlins-Mathematical/dp/0801869471

If you are interested in playing around with the symmetry group associated to the Rubik's cube, Sage (http://www.sagemath.org) has good support for it; the documentation can be found at http://www.sagemath.org/doc/html/ref/module-sage.groups.perm-gps.cubegroup.html . Sage also includes a number of efficient solvers for the Rubik's cube.
