say you have the alternating group An for some permutation group Sn. If you are given An and then 1 odd permutation, must you be able to generate all of Sn? I tried it for S3 and I multiplied all the even perms in S3 by only 1 element that wasn't in A3 and was able to generate all of S3. Does this hold for any n?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
