We give explicit, asymptotically sharp bounds for the probability that a pair of random permutations of degree n generates either Symm(n) or Alt(n) and also for the probability that a pair of even random permutations of degree n generate Alt(n). As an application we answer a question of Wiegold in the case of alternating groups.

Abstract

We give explicit, asymptotically sharp bounds for the probability that a pair of random permutations of degree n generates either Symm(n) or Alt(n) and also for the probability that a pair of even random permutations of degree n generate Alt(n). As an application we answer a question of Wiegold in the case of alternating groups.
