If you have a question about this talk, please contact Carl Scheffler.

This will be a work-in-progress talk on something that I’ve been doing on the side for some time now. The problem is as follows (and I imagine that many of you have seen this before).

A (3×3x3) cube of cheese can be dissected into unit cubes with 6 cuts—by making 2 planar cuts along each dimension. Can you do it in fewer cuts if you are allowed to rearrange and stack the remaining components before making the next cut?

I’ll talk about the ways in which we can generalize this problem and present some results, suprises and open problems.
