1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 | import Data.Set (Set) import qualified Data.Set as Set {-- Okay, I shot myself in the foot yesterday in that my brute-force lotto definition included the complete implementation for choose. So, today, I cannot say 'P26: generate the combinations of K distinct objects chosen from N elements of a list, blah-blah-blah, ...' because you'll just copy-n- paste my code from yesterday and crow, triumphantly: 'HA! FRIST! geophf!' And I'll be innundated with 'FRIST!' tweets, left, right, and centre. ('FRIST' is from the gaming community: responders are so eager to be the first-response post they accidentally misspell (originally, and now: intentionally) the first and only word in their first-response post.) So I can't copy-n-paste P26, because you'll just copy-n-paste the solution, and what's the fun of that? So, onto the next problem, P27, of the P-99 problem set: Set-to-sets-of-sets. Say you have the data type: --} data Buddy = Alexandra | Beth | Carla | Da5id | Elie | Franny | Graeme | Henry | Isaac deriving (Eq, Ord, Enum, Show, Read) {-- a. The P-27 problem statement begins: "In how many ways, ..." blah-di-blah-di-blah. That is: enumerate the combinations of the sets of 2, 3, 4 buddies from the set of all the buddies declared above. How many "unique" 2-3-4-combinations are there? Question (or, more properly, 'pensée'): why do I put 'unique' in quotes for Haskell, whereas in Prolog I would have to ... *ahem* 'assert' that uniqueness? If you don't get the humour, please forgive my perchant to parlay in `pataphor. b. Define a function --} bunch :: (Eq a, Ord a) => Set a -> [Int] -> Set (Set (Set a)) bunch buddies cliques = undefined {-- such that a set of elements are subdivided into sets of cliques, so, for example: let buddies = Set.fromList [Alexandra .. Isaac] in bunch buddies [2,2,5] ~> fromList [fromList [fromList [Alexandra, Beth], fromList [Carla, Da5id], fromList [Elie, Franny, Graeme, Henry, Isaac]], ...] ... and, yes, I 'went there' with a setof-setof-sets. Suggestions for a better return-type of this function called 'not-group-but-bunch-just-because'? Note at the bottom of P27: 'You may find more about this combinatorial problem in a good book on discrete mathematics under the term "multinomial coefficients".' Yeah. That. A(n inefficient) solution to this problem is at http://lpaste.net/107273 Update: the solution now properly guards uniqueness inline, so it has been 'efficientized' for your reviewing pleasure. --} |
