Abstract

A family of translates of a closedn-dimensional cube is called a cube tiling if the union of the cubes is the wholen-space and their interiors are disjoint. According to a famous unsolved conjecture of O. H. Keller, two of the cubes in ann-dimensional cube tiling must share a complete (n − 1)-dimensional face. In this paper we shall prove that to solve Keller's conjecture it is sufficient to examine certain factorizations of direct sum of finitely many cyclic group of order four.
