A cycle lemma for permutation inversions

S. Brunetti, A. Del Lungo, F. Del Ristoro
2002 Discrete Mathematics  
Using a "cycle lemma", a combinatorial proof of the results is given. Moreover, some applications to the Gaussian binomial coe cient are illustrated.  ...  Some enumerative results concerning the permutations of the multiset {x m 1 1 ; x m 2 2 } with respect to the inversion parameter are established and it is shown that these depend on gcd(m1; m2).  ...  Acknowledgements The authors wish to thank the anonymous referees for suggesting the reference to Narayana's paper [11] and for helpful comments.  ...

Nilpotents in finite symmetric inverse semigroups

Gracinda M. S. Gomes, John M. Howie
1987 Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society  
Inverse semigroups (see [3, Chapter V]) are of interest not only as a naturally occurring special case of semigroups but also for their role in describing partial symmetries.  ...  ,n -1) consists of all subpermutations of height r, i.e. all a in SP n for which |doma| = |ima| = r.
