PermutationCycles[perm]
gives a disjoint cycle representation of permutation perm.

DetailsDetails

  • The input permutation perm can be given as a permutation list or in disjoint cyclic form.
  • A permutation list is a reordering of the consecutive integers .
  • PermutationCycles[perm] returns an expression with head Cycles containing a list of cycles, each of the form , which represents the mapping of the to . The last point is mapped to .
  • PermutationCycles[perm, h] returns an expression with head h.
