Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Was wondering if anyone could explain to me what an adjacent transposition is (in relation to permutations, cycles etc).

I know what a transposition is, eg the product of transpositions for (34785) would be (35)(38)(37)(34).

I don't know what an adjacent transposition is though.

Cheers in advance.
