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

Is there a general method, given [tex]\sigma[/tex] and [tex]\rho[/tex] in Sn, for finding a permutation [tex]\tau[/tex] in Sn such that [tex]\rho = \tau ^{-1} \sigma \tau[/tex]? I know how to do it when [tex]\sigma[/tex] and [tex]\rho[/tex] are made of a single k-cycle, but what happens when they are more complex?

For example, for:

[tex]\sigma = (1, 2)(3, 4)[/tex]

[tex]\rho = (5, 6)(1, 3)[/tex]

In S6.

Thanks,

Chen
