Is there a difference between dispersion and london forces?

During lecture, Dr. Lavelle mentioned that they are the same for the purposes of this class

They are the same. Both names were included under the list of interchangeable names for induced dipole-induced dipole

For the purposes of this class they are the same, but in induced dipole moments the molecule that induces the dipole moments has a permanent dipole moment while the same does not occur in London Dispersion Forces.

Hi,

Could you explain what you mean by this further? What constitutes a permanent dipole moment? Thank you!
