We generalize also the notions of a Class sum and of a representative of a conjugacy class:
Can one derive Theorem 1.1 bijectively, or by an overcount, in the spirit of Denes [2], that counts factorizations of all conjugates of a Singer cycle and then divides by the conjugacy class size?
In this section we consider the problem of topological conjugacy of a class of flows of Brouwer homeomorphisms.
For example, one can investigate the poset [OMEGA](Conj(v)), where Conj(v) is the conjugacy class of the symmetric group which corresponds to the partition v.
This statement is also shown to be true for some weak Smarandache loops (inverse property, weak inverse property) but false for others (conjugacy closed, Bol, central, extra, Burn, A-, homogeneous) except if their holomorphs are nuclear or central.
Q and Z are the [W.sub.[Theta]] conjugacy classes of [Phi]([P.sub.[Theta]],[A.sub.[Theta]]) [intersection] [[Theta].sub.i].
Then G acts on P in a natural way and [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] Using the Magma-command G := Alt(32) and Subgroups(G:OrderEqual:=n) where n = [absolute value of G]/b, we get that G contains only one conjugacy class of subgroups of order [absolute value of G]/b, with K as representative, so the block stabilizer [G.sub.B] is conjugate to K, and then there is a block [B.sub.0] such that [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] Since G is flag-transitive, [B.sub.0] is an orbit of K acting on P.
Let [[chi].sub.[lambda]] be its value on the conjugacy class of type [lambda].
We see that [[zeta].sub.[sigma]](s) is determined by the conjugacy class of [sigma] in [S.sub.n].
This result is instrumental for solving equations and allows us to characterize the solutions of the elementary equations such as the commutation and conjugacy equations.
Relative Conjugacy. Let E/F be a quadratic separable extension of local or global fields, D an inner form of GL(n) over F.
