 Transitivity
 compute the transitivity of a permutation group Calling Sequence Transitivity( G ) Parameters

 G - a permutation group Description

 • The transitivity of a permutation group $G$ is the largest non-negative integer $k$ for which $G$ is $k$-transitive. In other words, the transitivity of $G$ is $k$ if $G$ is $k$-transitive, but not $\left(k+1\right)$-transitive. (By convention, the transitivity of an intransitive group is equal to $0$.)
 • The Transitivity( G ) command returns the transitivity of the permutation group G. The group G must be an instance of a permutation group. Examples
