Hi guys,

Melinda sent me a link to a 1982 paper titled "The Rubik Tesseract" because

it had a calculation for the number of permutations of a "Rubik 5-tope" (aka

MagicCube5D). I thought some of you would find the paper interesting, so

here is the link:

http://udel.edu/~tomkeane/RubikTesseract.pdf

It was cool to read the number of permutations of MagicCube4D is "about the

same as the number of ways to play a game of chess".
