Christoph Buchheim, Peter J Cameron, Taoyang Wu#### On the Subgroup Distance Problem

Christoph Buchheim, Peter J Cameron, Taoyang Wu

We investigate the computational complexity of finding an element of

a permutation group~$H\subseteq S_n$ with a minimal distance to a

given~$\pi\in S_n$, for different metrics on~$S_n$. We assume

that~$H$ is given by a set of generators, such that the problem

cannot be solved in polynomial time ...
