K.Iwama and R.Freivalds [11] considered query algorithms where the black box contains a permutation. Since then several authors have compared quantum and deterministic query algorithms for permutations. It turns out that the case of n-permutations where n is an odd number is difficult. There was no example of permutation problem where quantization can save half of the queries for (2m + 1)-permutations if m ≥ 2. Even for (2m)-permutations with m ≥ 2 the best proved advantage of quantum query

We present a group of 5-permutations such that the deterministic query complexity is 4 and the quantum query complexity is 2. The research was supported by Project 2009/0216/1DP/ from the European Social Fund.
