PermutationMax

PermutationMax[perm]

returns the largest integer moved by the permutation perm.

Details

  • PermutationMax works with Cycles objects as well as with permutation lists.
  • The largest integer moved by a permutation is sometimes called its degree. Another common definition of permutation degree is the number of integers moved.
