Permutation classes of polynomial growth

Albert, M. H.; Atkinson, M. D. and Brignall, Robert (2007). Permutation classes of polynomial growth. Annals of Combinatorics, 11(3-4) pp. 249–264.



A pattern class is a set of permutations closed under the formation of subpermutations. Such classes can be characterized as those permutations not involving a particular set of forbidden permutations. A simple collection of necessary and sufficient conditions on sets of forbidden permutations which ensure that the associated pattern class is of polynomial growth is determined. A catalogue of all such sets of forbidden permutations having three or fewer elements is provided together with bounds on the degrees of the associated enumerating polynomials.
