Mathematics explains the workings of the universe, from particle physics  to engineering and economics. Math is even closely related to music,  and their common ground has something to do with a Rubik's Cube puzzle.  Michael Staff explains how group theory can teach us to play a Rubik’s  Cube like a piano.

Adventures in Group Theory: Rubik’s Cube, Merlin’s Machine, and Other Mathematical Toys - Group theory deals with symmetry, in the most abstract form possible.  It is a core part of the undergraduate math curriculum, and forms part of the training of theoretical physicists and chemical crystallographers.  Group theory has tended to be very dry — until now.
