The word and its permutations come up a lot when the singer-keyboardist-producer talks about Johnny Headband 's Who Cooks for You.
We present uniform and non-uniform algorithms to rank and unrank permutations in lexicographic order.
The uniform algorithms run in O(n log n) time and outperform Knuth's ranking algorithm in all the experiments, and also the linear-time non- lexicographic algorithm of Myrvold-Ruskey for permutations up to size 128.

Questions that involve arranging a group are " permutations ," since in an arrangement the order of things is important.
Now that we have the permutation fully specified, we'll use it to learn a little about how the CTC permutation works — in particular, we're going to learn about cycles in permutations and try to understand the cycle structure of a CTC.

Fix a subset T ⊂ [k]. A permutation of T and a permutation of T c together give a permutation of [k].
From random matrices to random analytic functions
Just as before, a permutation of T and a permutation of T c together give a permutation of [k] and a permutation p ∈ Sk can arise from summands in which T is a union (possibly empty) of some of the cycles of p.
