Algorithms and classes to support enumerative combinatorics.
Currently just multiset partitions, but more could be added.
Terminology (following Knuth, algorithm 7.1.2.5M TAOCP)
*multiset* aaabbcccc has a *partition* aaabc | bccc
The submultisets, aaabc and bccc of the partition are called
*parts*, or sometimes *vectors*. (Knuth notes that multiset
partitions can be thought of as partitions of vectors of integers,
where the ith element of the vector gives the multiplicity of
element i.)
The values a, b and c are *components* of the multiset. These
correspond to elements of a set, but in a multiset can be present
with a multiplicity greater than 1.
The algorithm deserves some explanation.
Think of the part aaabc from the multiset above. If we impose an
ordering on the components of the multiset, we can represent a part
with a vector, in which the value of the first element of the vector
corresponds to the multiplicity of the first component in that
part. Thus, aaabc can be represented by the vector [3, 1, 1]. We
can also define an ordering on parts, based on the lexicographic
ordering of the vector (leftmost vector element, i.e., the element
with the smallest component number, is the most significant), so
that [3, 1, 1] > [3, 1, 0] and [3, 1, 1] > [2, 1, 4]. The ordering
on parts can be extended to an ordering on partitions: First, sort
the parts in each partition, left-to-right in decreasing order. Then
partition A is greater than partition B if A's leftmost/greatest
part is greater than B's leftmost part. If the leftmost parts are
equal, compare the second parts, and so on.
In this ordering, the greatest partition of a given multiset has only
one part. The least partition is the one in which the components
are spread out, one per part.
The enumeration algorithms in this file yield the partitions of the
argument multiset in decreasing order. The main data structure is a
stack of parts, corresponding to the current partition. An
important invariant is that the parts on the stack are themselves in
decreasing order. This data structure is decremented to find the
next smaller partition. Most often, decrementing the partition will
only involve adjustments to the smallest parts at the top of the
stack, much as adjacent integers *usually* differ only in their last
few digits.
Knuth's algorithm uses two main operations on parts:
Decrement - change the part so that it is smaller in the
(vector) lexicographic order, but reduced by the smallest amount possible.
For example, if the multiset has vector [5,
3, 1], and the bottom/greatest part is [4, 2, 1], this part would
decrement to [4, 2, 0], while [4, 0, 0] would decrement to [3, 3,
1]. A singleton part is never decremented -- [1, 0, 0] is not
decremented to [0, 3, 1]. Instead, the decrement operator needs
to fail for this case. In Knuth's pseudocode, the decrement
operator is step m5.
Spread unallocated multiplicity - Once a part has been decremented,
it cannot be the rightmost part in the partition. There is some
multiplicity that has not been allocated, and new parts must be
created above it in the stack to use up this multiplicity. To
maintain the invariant that the parts on the stack are in
decreasing order, these new parts must be less than or equal to
the decremented part.
For example, if the multiset is [5, 3, 1], and its most
significant part has just been decremented to [5, 3, 0], the
spread operation will add a new part so that the stack becomes
[[5, 3, 0], [0, 0, 1]]. If the most significant part (for the
same multiset) has been decremented to [2, 0, 0] the stack becomes
[[2, 0, 0], [2, 0, 0], [1, 3, 1]]. In the pseudocode, the spread
operation for one part is step m2. The complete spread operation
is a loop of steps m2 and m3.
In order to facilitate the spread operation, Knuth stores, for each
component of each part, not just the multiplicity of that component
in the part, but also the total multiplicity available for this
component in this part or any lesser part above it on the stack.
One added twist is that Knuth does not represent the part vectors as
arrays. Instead, he uses a sparse representation, in which a
component of a part is represented as a component number (c), plus
the multiplicity of the component in that part (v) as well as the
total multiplicity available for that component (u). This saves
time that would be spent skipping over zeros.

"""Enumerates partitions of a multiset.
Parameters
==========
multiplicities
list of integer multiplicities of the components of the multiset.
Yields
======
state
Internal data structure which encodes a particular partition.
This output is then usually processed by a vistor function
which combines the information from this data structure with
the components themselves to produce an actual partition.
Unless they wish to create their own visitor function, users will
have little need to look inside this data structure. But, for
reference, it is a 3-element list with components:
f
is a frame array, which is used to divide pstack into parts.
lpart
points to the base of the topmost part.
pstack
is an array of PartComponent objects.
The ``state`` output offers a peek into the internal data
structures of the enumeration function. The client should
treat this as read-only; any modification of the data
structure will cause unpredictable (and almost certainly
incorrect) results. Also, the components of ``state`` are
modified in place at each iteration. Hence, the visitor must
be called at each loop iteration. Accumulating the ``state``
instances and processing them later will not work.

Notes
=====
The goal of this modification of the ordinary decrement method
is to fail (meaning that the subtree rooted at this part is to
be skipped) when it can be proved that this part can only have
child partitions which are larger than allowed by ``ub``. If a
decision is made to fail, it must be accurate, otherwise the
enumeration will miss some partitions. But, it is OK not to
capture all the possible failures -- if a part is passed that
shouldn't be, the resulting too-large partitions are filtered
by the enumeration one level up. However, as is usual in
constrained enumerations, failing early is advantageous.
The tests used by this method catch the most common cases,
although this implementation is by no means the last word on
this problem. The tests include:
1) ``lpart`` must be less than ``ub`` by at least 2. This is because
once a part has been decremented, the partition
will gain at least one child in the spread step.
2) If the leading component of the part is about to be
decremented, check for how many parts will be added in
order to use up the unallocated multiplicity in that
leading component, and fail if this number is greater than
allowed by ``ub``. (See code for the exact expression.) This
test is given in the answer to Knuth's problem 7.2.1.5.69.
3) If there is *exactly* enough room to expand the leading
component by the above test, check the next component (if
it exists) once decrementing has finished. If this has
``v == 0``, this next component will push the expansion over the
limit by 1, so fail.

For larger counts, this method is much faster than calling one
of the enumerators and counting the result. Uses dynamic
programming to cut down on the number of nodes actually
explored. The dictionary used in order to accelerate the
counting process is stored in the ``MultisetPartitionTraverser``
object and persists across calls. If the user does not
expect to call ``count_partitions`` for any additional
multisets, the object should be cleared to save memory. On
the other hand, the cache built up from one count run can
significantly speed up subsequent calls to ``count_partitions``,
so it may be advantageous not to clear the object.

Notes
=====
If one looks at the workings of Knuth's algorithm M [AOCP]_, it
can be viewed as a traversal of a binary tree of parts. A
part has (up to) two children, the left child resulting from
the spread operation, and the right child from the decrement
operation. The ordinary enumeration of multiset partitions is
an in-order traversal of this tree, and with the partitions
corresponding to paths from the root to the leaves. The
mapping from paths to partitions is a little complicated,
since the partition would contain only those parts which are
leaves or the parents of a spread link, not those which are
parents of a decrement link.
For counting purposes, it is sufficient to count leaves, and
this can be done with a recursive in-order traversal. The
number of leaves of a subtree rooted at a particular part is a
function only of that part itself, so memoizing has the
potential to speed up the counting dramatically.
This method follows a computational approach which is similar
to the hypothetical memoized recursive function, but with two
differences:
1) This method is iterative, borrowing its structure from the
other enumerations and maintaining an explicit stack of
parts which are in the process of being counted. (There
may be multisets which can be counted reasonably quickly by
this implementation, but which would overflow the default
Python recursion limit with a recursive implementation.)
2) Instead of using the part data structure directly, a more
compact key is constructed. This saves space, but more
importantly coalesces some parts which would remain
separate with physical keys.
Unlike the enumeration functions, there is currently no _range
version of count_partitions. If someone wants to stretch
their brain, it should be possible to construct one by
memoizing with a histogram of counts rather than a single
count, and combining the histograms.
