Abstract: The set of permutations is a fundamental object in computer science, algebra, and combinatorics. In this expository talk we will look at the permutations in various angles, emphasizing on the combinatorial aspect. Topics covered will include algorithm, group theory, enumeration, representation, pattern avoidance and others if time allowed. Also we will introduce some active research topics or open problems directly associated to permutations. This talk is suitable for undergraduates.
