Title :A partial order on the symmetric groups defined by 3-cycles
Authors :Maeda, Takashi

Issue Date :30-Dec-2002
Abstract :We define a partial order on the symmetric group S_n of degree n by x ≥ y iff y = a_1 ··· a_kx with i(y) = i(x) + 2k where a_1, ··· , a_k are 3-cycles of increasing or decreasing consecutive three letters and i(*) is the number of inversions of the element * of S_n, on the analogy of the weak Bruhat order. Whether an even permutation is comparable to the identity or not in this ordering is considered. It is shown that all of the even permutations of degree n which map 1 to n or n - 1 are comparable to the identity.
