N where ρn . . ρ1 π = σ and i=1 ρi /2 = d(π, σ), with the additional constraint that ρi /2 ≤ w, for i = 1, . . , n, for any given w? It should be noted that when we choose diﬀerent values of w, the distance does not change, since the weight of the rearrangement operations is always the same, but we change the scenario of the rearrangent sorting. Of particular interest are operations of weight 1 or less, corresponding to 2breaks, that we know from DCJ theory that correspond to all classic operations of reversal, translocation, fusion and ﬁssons (generalized transpositions are also possible by applying two speciﬁc operations of weight 1).

N} is denoted by Sn , and we write a permutation π ∈ Sn as π = (π1 π2 . . πn ). A transposition is an operation ρ(i, j, k), 1 ≤ i < j < k ≤ n + 1, that moves blocks of contiguous elements of a permutation π ∈ Sn in such way that ρ(i, j, k) · (π1 . . πi−1 πi . . πj−1 πj . . πk−1 πk . . πn ) = (π1 . . πi−1 πj . . πk−1 πi . . πj−1 πk . . πn ). The Problem of Sorting by Transpositions consists in ﬁnding the minimum number of transpositions that transform a permutation π ∈ Sn into the identity permutation In = (1 2 .

2] An approximation factor of d(π), for permutation π, with Algorithm 1 is c p(π) b(π) , c = 3 b(π) 3 + b(π) mod 3 b(π) 3 . Since they showed that c ≤ 3, it only lacks to prove that p(π) ≤ b(π). The proof is given by Lemma 4. Lemma 4. Given a permutation π ∈ Sn , we have that p(π) < b(π). Proof. Let π ∈ Sn , π = In , s1 be the ﬁrst strip of π, and sm be the last strip of π, m ≤ n. If π1 = 1, then lc(πi ) = rc(πi ) = 0 for any element πi ∈ s1 . Thus, the elements belonging to s1 do not aﬀect p(π).
