Topological Dynamics in Tandem with Permutation Groups


The purpose of this study was to delve into the aspects of abstract algebra that has a link with topological dynamics in terms of permutation and symmetric groups. This would aid users to appreciate the role it plays in the theory and application of topological dynamics. The usage of matlab programming to carry out the permutations was carried out. The study contributes to the literature by providing candid explanation and usage of data-based evidence documenting the extent to which topological dynamics operates.
