A permutation $\sigma$ is a bijection from the set $[n]=\{1,2,\dots ,n\}$ to itself. We denote it using the notation $\begin{pmatrix}1 & 2 & & n \\ {\sigma(1)} & {\sigma(2)} &\dots & {\sigma(n)} \end{pmatrix},$ e.g. if $n=3$ ... $\sigma =\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 2 & 3&4&5&6 \\ 2& 3&4&5&1&6 \end{pmatrix}, \; \tau=\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 2 & 3&4&5&6 \\ 4& 1&3&2&6&5 \end{pmatrix}$

A permutation $\sigma$ is a bijection from the set $[n]=\{1,2, ,n\}$ to itself. We denote it using the notation $\begin{pmatrix}1 & 2 & & n \\ {\sigma(1)} & {\sigma(2)} & & {\sigma(n)} \end{pmatrix},$ ... $|A_{\sigma} |$ and $|A_\tau|?$ Can you relate these with the signs of permutations $\sigma$ and $\tau ?$
