Modern Algebra : Permutation/Symmetric Groups


In the following video, permutations is introduced, examples and T/F questions are shown.


Symmetric Groups

Symmetric groups are some of the most essential types of finite groups. A symmetric group is the group of permutations on a set. The group of

permutations on a set of n-elements is denoted S_n.


Orbits & Cycles

Permutations, cycles, and orbits are contrasted, compared, and further defined.
