Warning!-This is a paper but may contains 'bæd Ingɯliʃi'.
Because I'm 한국어 사용자(Korean user).

γ. Definitions
1. Situation means a set of all pieces' orientation and permutation.
2. Orientation of a piece means state of the piece. Here a state, it is a element of Symmetry Group of sphere. Especially, in Rubik's Cube, it is a element of O-Group. Orientation of a as a piece in situation S is O(S_a).
3. Permutation of a piece means a set of rotations that affects pieces. Permutation of a as a piece in situation S is P(S_a).
4. "A rotation affects a piece" after do rotations, the piece's orientation or permutation changes. Definite E(A_a) is true when rotation A affects piece a and else is false, E(A_a)↔(O(T_a)≠O(A_a))∨(O(T_a)≠O(A_a)).
5. Trivial Situation(or Solved Situation)(mark it T) is a "special" situation. (In general 333, because of center's orientation, there's many situations that is solved, but I'd definite only one is solved.)
6. A·B is a situation that is applied an formula if applies it to T, then became B to A.
7. Piece means permutation of T. Or P(T_a)=a where a is a piece.
8. Rotation means multiplying one of R, R' R2, ...B2 to a situation S.
9. Formula means permutations of rotation.(Algorithm has other meanings, so I substituted)
1. Orientation
Orientation of a piece is an element of O-group in Rubik's Cube, there's only needed names of elements or naming methods of it.
Here, O-group is a symmetric group of 3-hypercube, orientation is a quaternion.
It means, marking solved orientation ai+bj+ck(a, b, c∈R, a≠b≠c), other orientation can be marked like bi-aj+ck.
Or marking <a, b, c> is possible
Then changing orientation can be expressed like these.-(1)
Before applied orientation quadnion O, After one is (rotation symbol)o(O),
Rotation symbol of these is

and 2 using same in practice.-(1)
Here i, j, k axis is rotation center of z, x, y.
Then situation R can be written if R∈P(T_a), O(R_a)=zo(O(T_a))=(-1+k)O(T_a)(1/(-1+k)).
2. Permutation
Permutation of a piece means a set of rotations that affects pieces. And we can notice piece {U, R} is at {U, B} in situation R.
So, it needs to moving place at one rotation, it has to change like this.-(1)
F, B' --> (U)->(R), (R)->(D), (D)->(L), (L)->(U)
F', B --> (U)->(L), (L)->(D), (D)->(R), (R)->(U)
F2, B2 --> (U)->(D), (D)->(U), (R)->(L), (L)->(R)
R, L' --> (U)->(B), (B)->(D), (D)->(F), (F)->(U)
R', L --> (U)->(F), (F)->(D), (D)->(B), (B)->(U)
R2, L2 --> (U)->(D), (D)->(U), (F)->(B), (B)->(F)
U, D' --> (R)->(F), (F)->(L), (L)->(B), (B)->(R)
U', D --> (R)->(B), (B)->(L), (L)->(F), (F)->(R)
U2, D2 --> (R)->(L), (L)->(R), (F)->(B), (B)->(F)
Here left one is affecting rotation, right is if permutation of a piece contains like left element, substitute like right one.
3. Methods to Express
Situation S with imaginary piece can be express.

Here, a ... b are pieces.
There's no matter in permutation of pieces.
Multiply of two situation can be define like this.
Here, circle is a operation with definition.

But unfortunately the links are permitted the cafe's member. :D

Only the truth will lead me to the right way.
