On the number of cycles in a random permutation


Maples, Kenneth; Nikeghbali, Ashkan; Zeindler, Dirk (2012). On the number of cycles in a random permutation. Electronic Communications in Probability, 17:20.

Abstract

We show that the number of cycles in a random permutation chosen according to generalized Ewens measure is normally distributed and compute asymptotic estimates for the mean and variance.
