Thread: Combinatorics in IMSL

    Question Combinatorics in IMSL

    Good evening.

    I’m evaluating IMSL .Net library and reading the documentation. I’ve found no methods for generating basic combinatorics objects, e.g. combinations and permutations.

    Did I miss anything? Is there any way IMSL methods built for «higher goals» (matrix operations?) can be «tricked» into generating those objects?

    Maybe my questions and my examination of IMSL documentation are both very basic and silly, but I hope you can help me.

    Thank you very much for your attention.

    You can use the mathematical relations

    nCr = 1/[(n+1)Beta(r+1,n-r+1)]

    and

    nPr = Gamma(n+1)/Gamma(n+1-r)

    The Beta and Gamma functions are part of Imsl.Math.Sfun .
