PermutationSupport

PermutationSupport[perm]

returns the support of the permutation perm.

Details

  • The support of a permutation perm is the list of integers that are not fixed by perm.
  • The list of integers is returned sorted.
  • PermutationSupport works with Cycles objects as well as with permutation lists. When applied to a permutation list, PermutationSupport[{p1,,pn}] returns the pi for which pii.
