Math.Combinatorics.Multiset and Sawada’s algorithm

I’ve uploaded a new version of my Math.Combinatorics.Multiset library (see the previous announcement here). I’ve added a few more fairly simple algorithms (splitting a multiset into two pieces in all possible ways; finding all size-k submultisets of a multiset), and … Continue reading
