Among their topics are the probabilistic zeta function, computing covers of Lie algebras, enumerating subgroups of the symmetric group, groups of minimal order that are not n-power closed, the covering number of small alternating groups, geometric algorithms to resolve Bieberbach groups, the non-abelian tensor product of soluble minimax groups, and the short rewriting systems of finite groups.
In this work, the notion of palindromic permutations and generalized Smarandache palindromic permutations are introduced and studied using the symmetric group on the set N and this can now be viewed as the study of some palindromes and generalized Smarandache palindromes of numbers.
We also show that the afore-mentioned function g is a generating function for the number of homocyclic permutations in the symmetric group S(n).
i) Here is the symmetric group analogue of this conjecture:
Survey articles describe current efforts to classify endotrivial modules over the group algebras of finite groups, recent developments in the theory of affine q-Schur algebras, and Frobenius twists in the representation theory of the symmetric group.

Kanovei begins with an explanation of the descriptive said he read it back ground, and some theorems of descriptive set theory, then progresses to such topics as Borel ideals, equivalence relations, Borel reducibility of equivalents relations, elementary results, countable equivalence relations, hyperfinite equivalence relations, the first and second dichotomy theorems actions of the infinite symmetric group, turbulent group actions, summable equivalence relations, equalities, pinned equivalence relations, and the production of Borel equivalence relations to Borel ideals.
He reviews linear algebras, then describes the group and its subsets, including homomorphism of two groups and the proper symmetric group of a regular polyhedron, the theory of linear representations of groups, the three-dimensional rotation group, permutation groups, Lie groups and Lie algebras, unitary groups, real orthogonal groups and symplectic groups.
Let n be a positive integer, and let Sn denote the symmetric group of permutations on the set [n] := {1, .
