Definition:Symmetric Group/Notation

In order not to make notation for operations on a symmetric group overly cumbersome, product notation is usually used for mapping composition.

Thus $\pi \circ \rho$ is written $\pi \rho$.

Also, for the same reason, rather than using $I_{S_n}$ for the identity mapping, the symbol $e$ is usually used.
