PERMUTATION, civil law. Exchange; barter.
     2. This contract is formed by the consent of the parties, but delivery is indispensable; for, without it, it mere agreement. Dig. 31, 77, 4; Code, 4, 64, 3.
     3. Permutation differs from sale in this, that in the former a delivery of the articles sold must be made, while in the latter it is unnecessary. It agrees with the contract of sale, however, in the following particulars: 1. That he to whom the delivery is made acquires the right or faculty of prescribing. Dig. 41, 3, 4, 17. 2. That the contracting parties are bound to guaranty to each other the title of the things delivered. Code, 4, 64, 1. 3. That they are bound to take back the things delivered, when they have latent defects which they have concealed. Dig. 21, 1, 63. See Aso & Man. Inst. B. 2, t. 16, c. 1; Nutation; Transfer.

Integers and permutations -- two of the most basic mathematical objects -- are born of different fields and analyzed with separate techniques.
Figure 3 depicts the normalized quality of each of the 6000 permutations analyzed in this experiment against the [tau] value obtained from the comparison between each permutation per instance and the best-known permutation for such instance.
Experimental results have demonstrated that their scheme takes one round of permutation and two rounds of substitution to obtain a satisfactory diffusion effect.
These clusters are fully overlapped on the Radviz with any permutation of dimensional anchors.
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).
The paper is organized as follows: Section 2 discusses the related work; Section 3 explores the proposed partial permutation based encryption scheme on network coded MANETs.
(1) For the optimization problem, the objective function is system reliability of Cir/Con/k/n system, and the solution is the permutation of the components with maximum reliability.
In the design of a block cipher, permutations over [mathematical expression not reproducible] with an even n are preferred due to hardware and software requirements.
In the process, we also enumerate corners in (type B) permutation tableaux and (symmetric) alternative tableaux.
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.
