Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

This paper is a continuation of the study of partially ordered generalized patterns (POGPs) considered in [6, 7, 8]. We provide two general approaches: one to obtain connections between restricted permutations and other combinatorial structures, and one to treat the avoidance problems for words in case of segmented patterns. The former approach is related to coding combinatorial objects in terms of restricted permutations. We provide several examples of relations of our objects to other combinatorial structures, such as labeled graphs, walks, binary vectors, and others. Also, we show how restricted permutations are related to Cartesian products of certain objects.
