An (n,d) permutation array (PA) is a subset of Sn with the property that the distance (under some metric) between any two permutations in the array is at least d They became popular recently for communication over power lines. Motivated by an application to flash memories, in this paper, the metric used is the Chebyshev metric. A number of different constructions are given, as well as bounds on the size of such PA.
