The sources of the symmetric group and the data transmission direction are the same as that of the flow.
The interval structure of the Bruhat order on the symmetric group is not well understood.
In this paper we study those generic intervals in the Bruhat order of the symmetric group that are isomorphic to the principal order ideal of a permutation w, and consider when the minimum and maximum elements of those intervals are related by a certain property of their reduced words.
n - 1) with the transposition (i, i + 1) and therefore the symmetric group is
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).
The 16 papers from the latest Osaka conference on Schubert calculus consider such topics as consequences of the Lakshmibai-Sandhya theorems: the ubiquity of permutation patterns in Schubert calculus and related geometry, stable quasi-maps to holomorphic symplectic quotients, tableaux and Eulerian properties of the symmetric group, generalized (co)homology of the loop spaces of classical groups and the universal factorial Schur P- and Q-functions, and character sheaves on exotic symmetric spaces and Kostka polynomials.
