Choose the length of the random permutation and see cycles of different length by changing the random seed. Singleton cycles are marked by points. Transposed pairs are marked by lines. Longer cycles are represented by polygons. The plot label adds up the lengths of the cycles. The elements of cycles are given by tooltips.
