Abstract Algebra: (Linear Algebra Required) The symmetric group S_n is realized as a matrix group using permutation matrices. That is, S_n is shown to the isomorphic to a subgroup of O(n), the group of nxn real orthogonal matrices. Applying Cayley's Theorem, we show that every finite group is isomorphic to a subgroup of O(n).
