On the Number of Fuzzy Subgroups of Finite Symmetric Groups Marius Tarnauceanu The main goal of this paper is to classify the fuzzy subgroups of the finite symmetric group S_{n} . Explicit formulas for the number of distinct fuzzy subgroups of S_{n} are obtained in the particular cases n = 3 and n = 4. Some inequalities satisfied by this number are also established for n ≥ 5.
