Adjacencies in Permutations

  title={Adjacencies in Permutations},
  author={Bhadrachalam Chitturi and S KrishnaveniK.},
A permutation on an alphabet $ \Sigma $, is a sequence where every element in $ \Sigma $ occurs precisely once. Given a permutation $ \pi $= ($\pi_{1} $, $ \pi_{2} $, $ \pi_{3} $,....., $ \pi_{n} $) over the alphabet $ \Sigma $ =$\{ $0, 1, . . . , n$-$1 $\}$ the elements in two consecutive positions in $ \pi $ e.g. $ \pi_{i} $ and $ \pi_{i+1} $ are said to form an \emph{adjacency} if $ \pi_{i+1} $ =$ \pi_{i} $+1. The concept of adjacencies is widely used in computation. The set of permutations… Expand

Tighter upper bound for sorting permutations with prefix transpositions
