  Cube Engine Games
The engine, though designed for simplicity and elegance as opposed to feature and eyecandy checklists, still competes nicely thanks to its novel "6-directional heighfield deformable cube octree" world structure that is the basis for its in-game editing.
Cube is the original game that started it all.
Cube is also smaller in every way, in download, in hardware requirements (runs well on older video cards!), and in source code (the absolutely tiny code base is a very easy start for those wishing to experiment).

  Cube (geometry) - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The cube is a special kind of square prism, of rectangular parallelepiped and of triangular trapezohedron, and is dual to the octahedron.
A cube can be inscribed in a dodecahedron so that each vertex of the cube is a vertex of the dodecahedron and each edge is a diagonal of one of the dodecahedron's faces; taking all such cubes gives rise to the regular compound of five cubes.
If each edge of a cube is replaced by a one ohm resistor, the resistance between opposite vertices is 5/6 ohms, and that between adjacent vertices 7/12 ohms.

  Cube - LoveToKnow 1911
Kb(30s, a cube), in geometry, a solid bounded by six equal squares, so placed that the angle between any pair of adjacent faces is a right angle.
A famous problem concerning the cube, namely, to construct a cube of twice the volume of a given cube, was attacked with great vigour by the Pythagoreans, Sophists and Platonists.
Similarly the "cube root" of a quantity is another quantity which when multiplied by itself twice gives the original quantity; thus is the cube root of a (see Arithmetic and Algebra).

 AllRefer.com - cube (Mathematics) - Encyclopedia
The volume of a cube is equal to the product of its dimensions, and since its dimensions are equal, the volume is equal to the third power, or cube, of any one of its dimensions.
Hence, in arithmetic and algebra, the cube of a number or letter is that number or letter raised to the third power.
The problem of constructing a cube with a volume equal to twice that of a given cube using only a compass and a straightedge is known as the problem of the duplication of the cube and is one of the famous geometric problems of antiquity.

 nature's word | musings on sacred geometry
The cube is, as noted in Chapter One, an excellent representative of the inherent unity of all things.
If we reconsider the prior example of how the square root of three is generated from the cube, we will remember that it is generated by joining the opposing corners (the two opposites representing duality) with a line, i.e., making the relation between the two.
In the example of the cube, it is the two corners that represent our red and blue characteristics, and the line that stretches between them that would be our purple, "shared" portion.

Geometry was one of the two fields of pre-modern mathematics, the other being the study of numbers.
Geometry now uses methods of calculus and abstract algebra, so that many modern branches of the field are not easily recognizable as the descendants of early geometry.

 Cube Information
The cube is a special kind of square prism, of rectangular parallelepiped and of 3-sided trapezohedron, and is dual to the octahedron.
A cube is the three-dimensional case of the more general concept of a measure polytope.
A cube can be inscribed in a dodecahedron so that each vertex of the cube is a vertex of the dodecahedron and each edge is a diagonal of one of the dodecahedron's faces; taking all such cubes gives rise to the regular compound of five cubes.

 Welcome To Applied Scientific Research
Simulation of flow over cubes is relevant to a large number of industrial applications such as: convective cooling of microprocessor chips or buildings, drag and noise reduction in cars and trucks, or control of wind-induced vibrations in highrises.
The cube geometry is very simple, yet the flow around it manifests interesting 3-D structures that are prominent in more complex configurations.
The wake behind the cube, while symmetric during the early stages of its formation, is highly unsteady and asymmetric due to the introduction of random, noise-level disturbances to the flow field.

 Doubling the cube
The origins of the problem of doubling the cube may be somewhat obscure as we have just seen, but there is no doubt that the Greeks had known for a long time how to solve the problem of doubling the square.
Although these many different methods were invented to double the cube and remarkable mathematical discoveries were made in the attempts, the ancient Greeks were never going to find the solution that they really sought, namely one which could be made with a ruler and compass construction.
Gauss had stated that the problems of doubling a cube and trisecting an angle could not be solved with ruler and compasses but he gave no proofs.

 Metatron - Crystalinks
Metatron's cube is also considered a holy glyph, and was often drawn around an object or person to ward off demons and satanic powers.
This idea is also present in alchemy, in which the cube was favored as a containment circle or creation circle.
The simplest means of constructing Metatron's Cube is to begin with a cube flattened along a diagonal that passes through its center, such that it becomes a 2D figure, equivalent to a regular hexagon divided via its own diagonals into six equilateral triangles.

The isometries for the cube are rotations and reflections.
Note that the symmetry group of the 3-cube is not the same as the group of rotations of the cube about some line.
These additional symmetries arise from the reflections of the cube that are isometries but which can not be carried out physically in 3-dimensional space.

 Conformance Nist, Bindable Nodes, Viewpoint
As a result, the viewer should see a cubic geometry, with the word FRONT displayed, Text at the bottom of the world should show the position to be 0 0 10, and indicating the cube geometry with the pointing device should result in a "jumpcut" to the REAR view.
This is indicated by a cube geometry displaying the word FRONT on its face, Text at the bottom of the world indicating that the Viewpoint position is 0 0 10, and Text at the top of the world indicating the the FRONT viewpoint is bound to the top of the stack.
The word RIGHT should appear on the cube, Text at the bottom of the world should show the new Viewpoint position to be 10 0 0, and Text at the top of the world should indicate that the RIGHT Viewpoint is now bound to the top of the Viewpoint stack.

 Cube Map OpenGL Tutorial
Cube map texturing is a form of texture mapping that uses a 3D direction vector (a fancy phrase that means nothing more than a direction) to index into a texture that is six square 2D textures arranged like the faces of a cube.
Because the texture images for cube maps are merely the six cube faces of a cube environment, the cube map textures are easier to acquire from photographs or render dynamically.
Another advantage of using cube map textures to generate stable specular highlights is that the number of specular light sources (all encoded in a single cube map texture) is independent of the rendering performance.

These traditional and supposedly well-known structures are, surprisingly, closely related to small finite geometries.
Such designs are formed by assembling two-colored square tiles or two-colored cubical blocks into larger squares or cubes, when the number of tiles or blocks in the larger arrays is a power of two.
Similar structural diagrams can be made for the 64 and 63 points of, respectively, finite affine and projective spaces of 6 and 5 dimensions over the 2-element field, and the graphic symmetries that result generalize the results in fewer dimensions.

The geometry list consists of a version number, which will change if the definition of the cube object ever changes (scripts should check this to ensure compatibility or else things will surely break); the current version is 1 (one).
If you were to look at a cube with face index 4 towards you (remember vector indeces are zero based), then the top face would have index 0 (zero), the bottom 1 (one), the left 2, the right 3, and the back 5.
For any one move (a quarter turn of a slice of the cube), the first item in the specification is the face which lies parallel to the desired slice, and may be 0 (zero), 1 (one) or two corresponding to the back, right and bottom faces.

 Solid geometry Summary
In mathematics, solid geometry was the traditional name for the geometry of three-dimensional Euclidean space — for practical purposes the kind of space we live in.
Eudoxus established their measurement, proving the pyramid and cone to have one-third the volume of a prism and cylinder on the same base and of the same height, and was probably the discoverer of a proof that the volume of a sphere is the cube of its radii.
Analytic geometry and vector techniques have a major impact by allowing the systematic use of linear equations and matrix algebra; this becomes more important for higher dimensions.
