 Permutation To Right Inversion - Maple Help

Iterator[Inversion]

 PermutationToRightInversion
 convert permutation to right inversion table Calling Sequence PermutationToRightInversion(a,c) Parameters

 a - {list,rtable}; permutation of integers starting at one c - rtable; (optional) storage for inversion table Description

 • PermutationToRightInversion returns the inversion table of a permutation, a, of the integers 1 to $n$.
 • The a parameter is a permutation of the consecutive integers from 1 to $n$; it may be a list or a one-dimensional rtable indexed from one.
 • The optional c parameter is a one-dimensional rtable indexed from 1 with at least $n$ slots. If provided, it is used to store the inversion table.
 • The output is an Array, c, indexed from 1 to $n$, with ${c}_{j}$ the number of elements to the right of $j$ in a that are less than $j$. Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{Iterator}:-\mathrm{Inversion}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{PermutationToRightInversion}\left(\left[1,2,3,4\right]\right)$
 $\left[\begin{array}{cccc}{0}& {0}& {0}& {0}\end{array}\right]$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{PermutationToRightInversion}\left(\left[4,3,2,1\right]\right)$
 $\left[\begin{array}{cccc}{0}& {1}& {2}& {3}\end{array}\right]$ (2)

Use an existing vector to store the computed inversion table. Doing so reduces memory allocation when converting permutations to inversion tables in a loop.
