[docs]@timethis('combsimp') def combsimp(expr): r""" Simplify combinatorial expressions. This function takes as input an expression containing factorials, binomials, Pochhammer symbol and other "combinatorial" functions, and tries to minimize the number of those functions and reduce the size of their arguments. The algorithm works by rewriting all combinatorial functions as expressions involving rising factorials (Pochhammer symbols) and applies recurrence relations and other transformations applicable to rising factorials, to reduce their arguments, possibly letting the resulting rising factorial to cancel. Rising factorials with the second argument being an integer are expanded into polynomial forms and finally all other rising factorial are rewritten in terms of more familiar functions. If the initial expression consisted of gamma functions alone, the result is expressed in terms of gamma functions. If the initial expression consists of gamma function with some other combinatorial, the result is expressed in terms of gamma functions. If the result is expressed using gamma functions, the following three additional steps are performed: 1. Reduce the number of gammas by applying the reflection theorem gamma(x)*gamma(1-x) == pi/sin(pi*x). 2. Reduce the number of gammas by applying the multiplication theorem gamma(x)*gamma(x+1/n)*...*gamma(x+(n-1)/n) == C*gamma(n*x). 3. Reduce the number of prefactors by absorbing them into gammas, where possible.
