Pattern avoidance in permutations is a well-studied field of enumerative combinatorics. We will discuss the classical version for linear permutations and then introduce a recent variant for cyclic permutations. Finally, we will present our new results counting cyclic avoidance sets for pairs of length 4 patterns and give examples of how those results arise from counting arguments, including a proof for a cyclic variant of the Erdős-Szekeres Therorem.
