### Weights on cyclic orderings

Are there standard or known weights/metrics on cyclic orders? Cyclic orderings are different ways of listing elements from a finite set, where you call two lists the same if they differ only by a ...

### Finitely generated subgroups are cyclic, and a generalization

Is there a name for groups $G$ which satisfy the property that for any $a$ and $b$ in $G$, there is a $c\in G$ and integers $n$ and $m$ such that $a=c^n$ and $b=c^m$? Such a group has to be abelian, ...

### What kind of category is a cyclically ordered set?

Background: A preorder is a binary relation $\leq$ which is reflexive and transitive. We can write the transitive property as ${\leq}(a,b)\wedge{\leq}(b,c)\to{\leq}(a,c)$. There are additional axioms ...

### Cyclically symmetric functions

Where can I learn about the invariant theory associated with actions of cyclic groups (as opposed to symmetric groups)? E.g., do the functions $x+y+z$, $xy+yz+zx$, and $x^2y+y^2z+z^2x$ generate the ...

### Fibered products of cyclic groups

Background Let $m,n$ be positive integers and consider the cyclic group $\mathbb{Z}_{mn}$. We have a natural epimorphism $\mathbb{Z}_{mn} \to \mathbb{Z}_n$ coming from the exact sequence  0 \to ...
Let $\Lambda$ denote Connes's cyclic category. It is an extension of the simplex category $\Delta$ (of nonempty finite linearly ordered sets) obtained by adding an automorphism of order $n+1$ to the ...
