SWITCH_TABLE

A switch table is a tool for finding lex-maximal or -minimal in orbits under the action of a permutation group. Its main ingredient is an upper-left triangular matrix with group elements as entries. See https://arxiv.org/abs/1709.04746 The output contains the support at every level, i.e. a number and a Set<Int>, the number is the size of the support and and the Set<Int> are the indices of those entries that can be permuted to the index of the current level while keeping previous level indices fixed. I.e. entry [i,j] will keep the first i entries of a vector fixed, while moving the j-th entry to position i. Note that we start counting at 0!

Type:
Example:

 > $P = new PermutationAction(GENERATORS=>[[1,2,0,4,5,3],[2,1,0,5,4,3]]);
 > print $P->SWITCH_TABLE;
   Supports: (size, content)
 Level 0: 3 {0 1 2}
 Level 1: 2 {1 2}
   Entries:
 [0,0]: 0 1 2 3 4 5
 [0,1]: 1 0 2 4 3 5
 [0,2]: 1 2 0 4 5 3
 [1,1]: 0 1 2 3 4 5
 [1,2]: 0 2 1 3 5 4

Orbits

Dealing with orbits under permutation groups.


lex_maximal

Assume the group acts on a vector by permuting its entries. Then this method gives the lex-maximal vector from the orbit of the input vector under the group action. See https://arxiv.org/abs/1709.04746


lex_minimal

Similar to lex_maximal.
