### Permutability degrees of finite groups

#### Abstract

Given a finite group $G$, we introduce the \textit{permutability

degree} of $G$, as $pd(G)=\frac{1}{|G| \ |\mathcal{L}(G)|}

{\underset{X \in \mathcal{L}(G)}\sum}|P_G(X)|$, where

$\mathcal{L}(G)$ is the subgroup lattice of $G$ and $P_G(X)$ the

permutizer of the subgroup $X$ in $G$, that is, the subgroup

generated by all cyclic subgroups of $G$ that permute with $X\in

\mathcal{L}(G)$. The number $pd(G)$ allows us to find some

structural restrictions on $G$. Successively, we investigate the

relations between $pd(G)$, the probability of commuting subgroups

$sd(G)$ of $G$ and the probability of commuting elements $d(G)$ of

$G$. Proving some inequalities between $sd(G)$ and $d(G)$, we

correlate these two notions.
