Description

By default this function solves the following 0-1 subset sum problem. Given the set of positive integers (a_1, a_2, ..., a_l) and a positive integer n, find all non-empty subsets that sum to n, so that each of the integers a_i either appears in the subset or it does not, and the total number of summands should not exceed M, M <= n.

The bounded subset sum problem has restrictions on the number of times (bounds) a_i can turn up in the subset.

The algorithm is based on a generating function of Hardy and Littlewood used by Voinov and Nikulin (1997).

Usage

1
 get.subsetsum(a,n,M=NULL,problem="subsetsum01",bounds=NULL)

Arguments

a

An l-vector of positive integers with l>= 2.

n

A positive integer.

M

A positive integer, the maximum number of summands, M <= n

problem

one of the two problems to be solved: "subsetsum01" (default) for a 0-1 subset sum problem, or "bsubsetsum" a bounded subset sum problem.

bounds

An l-vector of positive integers, bounds for s_i, i.e. 0 <= s_i <= b_i

Value

p.n

total number of solutions obtained.

solutions

a matrix with each column presenting a solution for n.
