Type your comment:   Herbert, they are ordered by group size. <r3mc> is of order 6, while <m4> is of order 4. Note also that <r3mc>=<r3,mc>, and I dont generally think of this group as having a single generator. The page splits are due page length.

Your name:   Herbert

Type your comment:   If m4 = r4 mc, you put 9 of the ten possible conjugacy classes of cube symmetries onto page 4 of your cube symmetries page. Why is the tenths (r3 mc) on page 2?

Post:   102
Your name:   Jaap Scherphuis
Website:   this one
Type your comment:   The m4 symmetry is the combination of an r4 turn (90 degree cube turn) with the central reflection. It has order 4.
It is a bit like the glide reflection in plane geometry. Try out my cubie applet to see what it does.
