GROUPS AND GROUP ACTIONS 4. The cycle type of a permutation Suppose σ ∈ Sn . Now carry out the following steps. • Form the sequence 1 → σ(1) → σ 2 (1) → · · · → σ r1 −1 (1) → σ r1 (1) = 1 where σ k (j) = σ(σ k−1 (j)) and r1 is the smallest positive power for which this is true. • Take the smallest number k2 = 1, 2, . . , n for which k2 = σ t (1) for every t. Form the sequence k2 → σ(k2 ) → σ 2 (k2 ) → · · · → σ r2 −1 (k2 ) → σ r2 (k2 ) = k2 where r2 is the smallest positive power for which this is true.

GROUPS AND GROUP ACTIONS Then a symmetry is defined once we know where the vertices go, hence there are as many symmetries as permutations of the set {A, B, C}. Each symmetry can be described using permutation notation and we obtain the 6 symmetries ι= A B C , A B C A B C , B C A A B C , C A B A B C , A C B A B C C B A A B C . B A C Therefore we have | Sym( )| = 6. 16. Let S ⊆ R2 be the square B(−1, 1), C(−1, −1), D(1, −1). B centred at the origin O with vertices at A(1, 1), A ·O C D Then a symmetry is defined by sending A to any one of the 4 vertices then choosing how to send B to one of the 2 adjacent vertices.

Definition and examples of arithmetic functions Let Z+ = N0 −{0} be the set of positive integers. A function ψ : Z+ −→ R (or ψ : Z+ −→ C) is called a real (or complex) arithmetic function if ψ(1) = 1. There are many important and interesting examples. 1. The following are all real arithmetic functions: (a) The ‘identity’ function id : Z+ −→ R; id(n) = n. 24. (c) For each positive natural number r, σr : Z+ −→ R; dr . σr (n) = d|n σ1 is often denoted σ; σ(n) is equal to the sum of the (positive) divisors of n.
