NAME

Math::GSL::Multiset - Multisets manipulation

SYNOPSIS

    use Math::GSL::Multiset qw/:all/;

    my $ms = Math::GSL::Multiset->($n, $k);
    
    my $value = $ms->get(2);

    # compute next multiset
    $ms->next;
    # compute the previous multiset


    # clone a multiset
    my $other = $ms->clone();

DESCRIPTION

A multiset c is represented by an array of k integers in the range 0 to n-1, where each value c_i may occur more than once. The multiset c corresponds to indices of k elements chosen from an n element vector with replacement. In mathematical terms, n is the cardinality of the multiset while k is the maximum multiplicity of any value.

Object Oriented API

Handy Perl-style OO API for Multisets.

new

Creates a new multiset with parameters n, k and initializes it to the lexicographically first multiset element, i.e., 0 repeated k times.

    my $ms = Math::GSL::Multiset->($n, $k);
init_first

Initializes the multiset to the lexicographically first multiset element, i.e. 0 repeated k times.

    $ms->init_first;
init_last

Initializes the multiset c to the lexicographically last multiset element, i.e. n-1 repeated k times.

    $ms->init_last;
get

Returns the value of the i-th element of the multiset. If i lies outside the allowed range of 0 to k-1 then the error handler is invoked and 0 is returned.

    my $val = $ms->get($k-1);
next

Advances the multiset to the next multiset element in lexicographic order and returns GSL_SUCCESS. If no further multisets elements are available it returns GSL_FAILURE and leaves the multiset unmodified. Starting with the first multiset and repeatedly applying this function will iterate through all possible multisets of a given order.

    $ms->next();
prev
    $ms->prev();

Steps backwards from the multiset to the previous multiset element in lexicographic order, returning GSL_SUCCESS. If no previous multiset is available it returns GSL_FAILURE and leaves the multiset unmodified.

to_list

Creates a Perl list of integers with the values from the multiset, starting at index 0 and ending at index $k-1.

    @data = $ms->to_list;
clone

Creates a new multiset with the same size, and same values.

    my $new = $ms->clone;
