4x4x4 parity algorithms

All algorithms can be applied to the 6x6x6 if instead of turning the outer 2 layers, turn the outer 3 layers; instead of turning 1 inner layer slice, turn 2 inner layer slices. It is also clearly not a speedsolving algorithm as “Lucas Parity” is. If they are not use either of the first two algorithms on this page. Their inner slice turns may all be replaced with wide turns and still preserve the first three layers F3L of the 4x4x4 and flip one dedge.

Solutions listed under a case image which are not move optimal in the move metric in which algorithms are sorted by:. However, this PDF includes all cases and relatively short algorithms to solve each one directly. Although the third column in the majority of the algorithm bars on this page is blank, when it is not blank, it algorithjs either an algorithm name given by the algorithm author or an algorithm label for organizational or classification purposes.

The obvious example is PLL parity in 4x4x4: Combining some form of PLL parity and a single dedge flip creates one of the many cases of what’s commonly called double parity. However, despite that all 25,15 single dedge flip solutions which begin and end with an l2 or r2 move can instead be Lw2 and Rw2, respectively, all slices will be expressed as single slice lowercase turns for simplicity for all 25,15 solutions.

Although symmetrical algorithms are technically conjugates of non-symmetrical algorithms, non-symmetrical algorithms are algorithms algorothms are solely the result algofithms a composition of one or more separate algorithm pieces, which all together accomplish the desired task.

Your browser does not support script. If they are on the same layer as displayed on the left you can use either of the two algorithms below to place them on different layers as displayed on the right. We can count that this algorithm has 7 block half turn moves BHTM without breaking it up. At the same time, we can count a total of 11 block quarter turn moves BQTM.


How to speedsolve the 4x4x4 cube – Solving the 3x3x3

No “conjugate assistance” is used. They are called “2 2-cycles” for short. The term “parity” can be used to describe a number of situations that occur during a 4x4x4 solve which cannot manifest during a 3x3x3 standard size Rubik’s cube solve. Such an algorithm is called a non-pure algorithm when compared to algorithms which just flip a single dedge, which are often called pure flips.

4x44x4 of the algorithms on this page affect some centers of the 4x4x4 supercube: Despite that one can technically solve all 22 PLL parity cases by executing an algorithm meant to solve any one of them to any face and then finish solving the 4x4x4 as if it was a 3x3x3, special algorithms have been developed for every case.

So you will need to learn the next algorithm to pair the last two unpaired edge sets.

Simply convert the turns of the L and R faces into their corresponding inner wlgorithms turns and select the resulting algorithms which flip a single dedge on the 4x4x4. In fact, the most popular speedcubing single parity algorithms perform additional swaps besides flipping a single dedge due to the use of wide turns. Symmetrical algorithms are conjugates.

On January 24,speedsolving. Tom Rokicki and Ed Trice. There are many types of parity cases which can occur during a 4x4x4 solve, but the cases which result from attempting to reduce a fully scrambled 4x4x4 into a pseudo 3x3x3 state this means an even n x n x n cube in which all of its composite edges are complete and all of its centers are complete and are in the correct center orientation, in general.

The aim of this section is to take you from this. Perhaps if the 3x3x3 Classic Setup is used up to depth 21, some 21 slice quarter turn solutions may be found. This page attempts to list move optimal algorithms for every common form of parity algorlthms in popular 4x4x4 Rubik’s Revenge solving methods. The four cases above clearly switch two dedgesbut they can also be interpreted as doing two separate swaps of wing edges.

In practice, human creation of symmetrical algorithms requires more trial and error of different paths in both creation of the base the base is defined as the move sequence B in A B A’ and final setup moves, whereas the creation of non-symmetrical algorithms requires having knowledge of forming different pieces individually and knowing how to combine them.


Here’s one video tutorial that illustrates the typical aglorithms. OLL parity falls under this definition too so the reduced 4x4x4 has four times as many positions as you would expect.

The creation of a symmetrical algorithm requires one to confront the question “how can I change what I have into what I want it to be? Page actions View View source History More. Below are two single dedge flip 2-cycle algorithms illustrating the idea.

That is, besides just showing parity cases and algorithms for those cases, this page attempts to attribute credit to the original founder of an algorithm as well.

Which face of the cube is not important because all we are doing in this section is matching the same coloured edges.

4x4x4 parity algorithms – Wiki

If not, Right clock, Top anti, Back clock. However, the term pure is more formally associated with an algorithm being supercube safe –algorithms which do not permute move any centers in the supercube version of a given order. For this particular set, a search up through depth 18 was performed.

The problem is that we no longer have a third unmatched pair to realign the centres with. A clear example of a symmetrical algorithm is Stefan Pochmann’s n x n x n opposite PLL parity algorithm, Rw2 F2 U2 r2 U2 F2 Rw2where all moves in the algorithm are conjugate moves except for the one move in the middle. Algorithms for the Cage Methodas well as algorithms for theoretical purposes and general 4x4x4 exploration are present as well. You might be lucky when you have finish pairing the third last pair with the final two pairs being matched when the centres are realigned, however, this is less likely than still having to match them.

Naturally, these type of parity cases are called reduction parity. Clearly this algorithm has much more of a variety of moves than “Lucas Parity”. In MayMichael Gottlieb defined reduction parity in detail. They also happen to be supercube safe.

This 2-cycle of wings is as common during a K4 Method solve as the single dedge flip is, but it should never arise during a solve using the Reduction Method because two dedges are not paired up.
