Edge coloring of the cubeI didn't know exactly which forum branch to choose for this problem: We have a cube and we are coloring its edges. There are three colors available. We say that the two colorings are the same if one can obtain a second by turning cube and permuting colors. Find the number of different colorings. Any ideas? |

Re: Edge coloring of the cubeHi, I think that you could find ideas in Polya's 1937 paper, which was reprinted as a book. Here is the reference : G. Pólya; R. C. Read (1987). Combinatorial Enumeration of Groups, Graphs, and Chemical Compounds. New York: Springer-Verlag. ISBN 0-387-96413-4. MR0884155 |
