In these experiments, we focus our attention on early decisions and how changes to the first variables of the permutations can improve the cost of the search.
For the three first data set (Iris, Ecoli, and Olive) data sets, we find the global best permutation for each quality measurements by searching over all permutations.
In Section 3, we derive several types of magic states arising from permutation matrices in small dimensions d [less than or equal to] 9, we make their Wigner function explicit and obtain state-dependent proofs of contextuality based on the existence of pentagons between the appropriate states (stabilizer and magic).

To begin with, it is worthy to mention that there have been several bijections from permutation tableaux to permutations up to now, see Burstein (2007); Corteel and Nadeau (2009); Corteel and Kim (2011); Steingrimsson and Williams (2007).
In the security environment, there are two types of instruction, one is the SP-network Substitution Permutation network like AES, PRESENT etc., and another is the Feistel network.
More generally, permutations with a given number of successions also appeared in combinatorial theory literature (see [6, 13]).
The more deteriorated pavement surface areas should be rehabilitated through the permutation algorithm to optimize resources within a limited budget, compared with the current rehabilitation method, such as worst-first maintenance.
To qualify for a serious permutation you have to have four or five teams all involved in meaningful matches with an As It Stands table on the screen, a world-renowned expert on away goals in the studio and a commentator making wisecracks about "needing an abacus to keep up with developments".
