combinat

 encodepart
 compute canonical integer representing partition
 decodepart
 compute canonical partition represented by integer Calling Sequence encodepart(l) decodepart(n, m) Parameters

 l - partition; non-decreasing list of positive integers n - positive integer m - positive integer Description

 • The functions encodepart and decodepart provide a canonical labeling of all the partitions of n.
 • Given a partition l of n, encodepart(l) computes and returns the integer m between $1$ and numbpart(n) uniquely representing this partition.
 • Given a positive integer n and a positive integer m between $1$ and numbpart(n) the function decodepart(m, n) computes and returns the unique partition l represented by this positive integer.
 • The command with(combinat,encodepart) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command. Examples
