MAD 6206 Combinatorics I, Fall 2011 CRN: 87401 Assignment 7 Question 1 . (Rotations of the 3-d cube) We talked about coloring the 6 faces of the cube in class so that each face has a different color. We shall color the vertices and edges of the cube in this problem. Assume that colorings are equivalent under rotations. (a) Color the eight vertices of the cube with k colors so that no two vertices have the same color. How many different colorings are there? (b) Color the twelve edges of the cube with k colors so that no two edges have the same color. How many different colorings are there? Question 2 . (Cycle index of the group of rotations on the vertices of the cube) Consider coloring the vertices of the cube, assuming equivalence under rotations. Let G be the corresponding permutation group on the set of vertices of the cube. (a) Find the cycle index of G . (b) Find the number of possible colorings if there are m colors available.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
