C&O 330 - ASSIGNMENT #5 DUE FRIDAY, 19 DECEMBER AT 10:31PM (1) (20 points) (a) (15 points) Let u < and d ↔≥ . Let a 1 , . . . , a 4 be positive integers. Find the number of permutations with pattern u a 1 - 1 du a 2 - 1 du a 3 - 1 du a 4 - 1 , expressing your result as a determinant of binomial numbers. Solution: This part is a slight generalisation of the similar question on the previous assignment. It is done in the same way, and many of the details are in the Notes! The result is det ( M 4 ) where M 4 = bracketleftBigg parenleftbigg 5 - i k =1 a k 5 - i k =5 - j a k parenrightbigg bracketrightBigg 4 × 4 (b) (5 points) On the basis of this evidence state a conjecture of the number of permutations with pattern u a 1 - 1 du a 2 - 1 d · · · u a m - 1 du a m +1 - 1 . Solution: The conjecture is det ( M m +1 ) where M m +1 = bracketleftBigg parenleftbigg m +2 - i k =1 a k m +2 - i k =5 - j a k parenrightbigg bracketrightBigg ( m +1) × ( m +1) . (2) (20 points) A dodecahedron is a regular solid consisting of 12 regular pentagons arranged so that each vertex of the dodecahedron is incident with 3 pentagons and that every edge of the dodecahedron is incident with 2 pentagons. (a) (15 points) Find the cycle index polynomial for the automorphism group of the dodecahedron acting on the 12 faces of the dodecahedron. Solution: The automorphisms come from rotations around axes spec- ified by a) two antipodal vertices, b) two andipodal edges and c) two faces. Case (a): There are 20 vertices, and therefore 10 pairs of antipodal vertices and therefore 10 axes of rotation passing through antipodal vertices..If c is a rotation through 120 degrees, then c and c 2 are au- tomorphisms. Thus there are 20 automorphisms, each consisting of 4 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
