symmetric group[sə′me·trik ′grüp]
A symmetric group of order n is a group consisting of all possible permutations of n objects. Such a group has n! elements. The permutations of n objects with an even number of inversions form an alternating subgroup of the symmetric group; this alternating subgroup has n!/2 elements.
