# Combinatorics

## Description

A collection of modules and methods for performing Combinatoric calculations.

## Features

• Adds `powerset` to {Array} and {Set}.
• Adds Haskell/Python style list comprehensions via {Array#comprehension}.

## Examples

Power-set of an {Array}:

``````require 'combinatorics/power_set'

[1,2,3,4].powerset
# => [[],
[4],
[3],
[3, 4],
[2],
[2, 4],
[2, 3],
[2, 3, 4],
[1],
[1, 4],
[1, 3],
[1, 3, 4],
[1, 2],
[1, 2, 4],
[1, 2, 3],
[1, 2, 3, 4]]
``````

Power-set of a {Set}:

``````Set['ab', 'cd', 'ef'].powerset
# => [#<Set: {}>,
#<Set: {"ef"}>,
#<Set: {"cd"}>,
#<Set: {"cd", "ef"}>,
#<Set: {"ab"}>,
#<Set: {"ab", "ef"}>,
#<Set: {"ab", "cd"}>,
#<Set: {"ab", "cd", "ef"}>]
``````

List comprehensions:

``````require 'combinatorics/list_comprehension'

[(0..10).step(2),('a'..'c')].comprehension.to_a
# => [[0, "a"],
[0, "b"],
[0, "c"],
[2, "a"],
[2, "b"],
[2, "c"],
[4, "a"],
[4, "b"],
[4, "c"],
[6, "a"],
[6, "b"],
[6, "c"],
[8, "a"],
[8, "b"],
[8, "c"],
[10, "a"],
[10, "b"],
[10, "c"]]
``````
