# Ordered partitions

Ordered partitions
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

In this task we want to find the ordered partitions into fixed-size blocks.

This task is related to Combinations in that it has to do with discrete mathematics and moreover a helper function to compute combinations is (probably) needed to solve this task.

${\displaystyle partitions({\mathit {arg}}_{1},{\mathit {arg}}_{2},...,{\mathit {arg}}_{n})}$ should generate all distributions of the elements in ${\displaystyle \{1,...,\Sigma _{i=1}^{n}{\mathit {arg}}_{i}\}}$ into ${\displaystyle n}$ blocks of respective size ${\displaystyle {\mathit {arg}}_{1},{\mathit {arg}}_{2},...,{\mathit {arg}}_{n}}$.

Example 1: ${\displaystyle partitions(2,0,2)}$ would create:

{({1, 2}, {}, {3, 4}),
({1, 3}, {}, {2, 4}),
({1, 4}, {}, {2, 3}),
({2, 3}, {}, {1, 4}),
({2, 4}, {}, {1, 3}),
({3, 4}, {}, {1, 2})}


Example 2: ${\displaystyle partitions(1,1,1)}$ would create:

{({1}, {2}, {3}),
({1}, {3}, {2}),
({2}, {1}, {3}),
({2}, {3}, {1}),
({3}, {1}, {2}),
({3}, {2}, {1})}


Note that the number of elements in the list is

${\displaystyle {{\mathit {arg}}_{1}+{\mathit {arg}}_{2}+...+{\mathit {arg}}_{n} \choose {\mathit {arg}}_{1}}\cdot {{\mathit {arg}}_{2}+{\mathit {arg}}_{3}+...+{\mathit {arg}}_{n} \choose {\mathit {arg}}_{2}}\cdot \ldots \cdot {{\mathit {arg}}_{n} \choose {\mathit {arg}}_{n}}}$

(see the definition of the binomial coefficient if you are not familiar with this notation) and the number of elements remains the same regardless of how the argument is permuted (i.e. the multinomial coefficient).

Also, ${\displaystyle partitions(1,1,1)}$ creates the permutations of ${\displaystyle \{1,2,3\}}$ and thus there would be ${\displaystyle 3!=6}$ elements in the list.

Note: Do not use functions that are not in the standard library of the programming language you use. Your file should be written so that it can be executed on the command line and by default outputs the result of ${\displaystyle partitions(2,0,2)}$. If the programming language does not support polyvariadic functions pass a list as an argument.

Notation

Here are some explanatory remarks on the notation used in the task description:

${\displaystyle \{1,\ldots ,n\}}$ denotes the set of consecutive numbers from ${\displaystyle 1}$ to ${\displaystyle n}$, e.g. ${\displaystyle \{1,2,3\}}$ if ${\displaystyle n=3}$.

${\displaystyle \Sigma }$ is the mathematical notation for summation, e.g. ${\displaystyle \Sigma _{i=1}^{3}i=6}$ (see also [1]).

${\displaystyle {\mathit {arg}}_{1},{\mathit {arg}}_{2},...,{\mathit {arg}}_{n}}$ are the arguments — natural numbers — that the sought function receives.

## J

Brute force approach:

require'stats'
partitions=: ([,] {L:0 (i.@#@, -. [)&;)/"1@>@,@{@({@comb&.> +/\.)


First we compute each of the corresponding combinations for each argument, then we form their cartesian product and then we restructure each of those products by: eliminating from values populating the the larger set combinations the combinations already picked from the smaller set and using the combinations from the larger set to index into the options which remain.

Examples:

   partitions 2 0 2

In other words, initially we just work with relevant combinations (working from right to left). To understand the step which produces the final result, consider this next sequence of results (J's / operator works from right to left, as that's the pattern established by assignment operations, and because that has some interesting and useful mathematical properties):

   ([,] {L:0 (i.@#@, -. [)&;)/0 1;0 1
┌───┬───┐
│0 1│2 3│
└───┴───┘
([,] {L:0 (i.@#@, -. [)&;)/0 1;0 1;0 1
┌───┬───┬───┐
│0 1│2 3│4 5│
└───┴───┴───┘
([,] {L:0 (i.@#@, -. [)&;)/0 1;0 1;0 1;0 1
┌───┬───┬───┬───┐
│0 1│2 3│4 5│6 7│
└───┴───┴───┴───┘


Breaking down that last example:

   (<0 1) ([,] {L:0 (i.@#@, -. [)&;)0 1;2 3;4 5
┌───┬───┬───┬───┐
│0 1│2 3│4 5│6 7│
└───┴───┴───┴───┘


Here, on the right hand side we form 0 1 0 1 2 3 4 5, count how many things are in it (8), form 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 from that and then remove 0 1 (the values in the left argument) leaving us with 2 3 4 5 6 7. Meanwhile, on the left side, keep our left argument intact and use the indices in the remaining boxes to select from the right argument. In theoretical terms this is not particularly efficient, but we are working with very short lists here (because otherwise we run out of memory for the result as a whole), so the actual cost is trivial. Also note that sequential loops tend to be faster than nested loops (though we do get the effect of a nested loop, here - and that was the theoretical inefficiency).

## jq

Works with: jq version 1.4

The approach adopted here is similar to the #Python solution.

# Generate a stream of the distinct combinations of r items taken from the input array.
def combination(r):
if r > length or r < 0 then empty
elif r == length then .
else  ( [.[0]] + (.[1:]|combination(r-1))),
( .[1:]|combination(r))
end;

# Input: a mask, that is, an array of lengths.
# Output: a stream of the distinct partitions defined by the mask.
def partition:

# partition an array of entities, s, according to a mask presented as input:
def p(s):
if length == 0 then []
else . as $mask | (s | combination($mask[0])) as $c | [$c] + ($mask[1:] | p(s -$c))
end;
. as $mask | p( [range(1; 1 + ($mask|add))] );

Example:

([],[0,0,0],[1,1,1],[2,0,2])
| . as $test_case | "partitions \($test_case):" , ($test_case | partition), "" Output: $ jq -M -n -c -r -f Ordered_partitions.jq

## Julia

The method used, as seen in the function masked(), is to take a brute force permutation of size n = sum of partition, partition it using the provided mask, and then sort the inner lists in order to properly filter duplicates.

We keep only the partitions which contain sequences sorted by ascending order. Those partitions are yielded by an iterator.

Granted, this is horribly inefficient, with constantly creating and killing threads and whatnot (every time a partition is created, a thread is made to produce the next partition, so thousands if not millions of threads live and die, depending on the problem size). But algorithms are often more naturally expressed in a coroutine manner -- for this example, "making a new partition" and "picking elements for a partition" can be done in separate recursions cleanly if so desired. It's about 20 times slower than the next code example, so there. use strict; use warnings; use Thread 'async'; use Thread::Queue; sub make_slices { my ($n, @avail) = (shift, @{ +shift });

my ($q, @part,$gen);
$gen = sub { my$pos = shift;        # where to start in the list
if (@part == $n) { # we accumulated enough for a partition, emit them and # wait for main thread to pick them up, then back up$q->enqueue(\@part, \@avail);
return;
}

# obviously not enough elements left to make a partition, back up
return if (@part + @avail < $n); for my$i ($pos .. @avail - 1) { # try each in turn push @part, splice @avail,$i, 1;       # take one
$gen->($i);                             # go deeper
splice @avail, $i, 0, pop @part; # put it back } };$q = Thread::Queue->new;
(async{ &$gen; # start the main work load$q->enqueue(undef)      # signal that there's no more data
})->detach;     # let the thread clean up after itself, not my problem

return $q; } my$qa = make_slices(4, [ 0 .. 9 ]);
while (my $a =$qa->dequeue) {
my $qb = make_slices(2,$qa->dequeue);

({2, 4}, {}, {1, 3})
({1, 4}, {}, {2, 3})
({2, 3}, {}, {1, 4})
({1, 3}, {}, {2, 4})
({1, 2}, {}, {3, 4})

({3}, {1}, {2})
({2}, {3}, {1})
({1}, {3}, {2})
({2}, {1}, {3})
({1}, {2}, {3})


The set of ordered partitions is not returned in lexicographical order itself; but it's supposed to be a set so that's hopefully okay. (One could sort the output before printing, but (unlike in Raku) Perl's built-in sort routine cannot meaningfully compare arrays without being passed a custom comparator to do that, which is a little messy and thus omitted here.)

## Phix

Uses the permutes() routine [new in 1.0.2], which handles duplicate elements properly, so in the {1,2,3,4} test this only generates 12,600 combinations, whereas the previous version generated and obviously filtered and sorted all of the possible 3,628,800 full permutations, therefore it is now at least a couple of hundred times faster.

The library function choices used in this solution takes a pair ${\displaystyle (s,k)}$ and returns the set of all subsets of ${\displaystyle s}$ having cardinality ${\displaystyle k}$. The library function nrange takes a pair of natural numbers to the minimum consecutive sequence containing them. The sum function adds a pair of natural numbers.
