Abstract
We prove that most permutations of degree n have some power which is a cycle of prime length approximately log n. Explicitly, we show that for n sufficiently large, the proportion of such elements is at least 1 − 5/log log n with the prime between log n and (log n)^{log} log ^{n}. The proportion of even permutations with this property is at least 1 − 7/log log n.
