Reconfiguring a Chain of Cubes

Abstract

Any configuration of a chain of cubes can be transformed into any other while maintaining contact between adjacent cubes in the chain using a quadratic number of moves. We show that this result is also true in the more constrained setting of a “Kibble chain” where the cubes are threaded on an elastic string, and slits in the cubes allow limited turns at… (More)
