Calculate the number of partitions of a vector into groups. See the related integer sequences A025035-A025042 at OEIS (E.g. A025036 for Number of partitions of 1, 2, ..., 4n into sets of size 4.)

comboGroupsCount(v, numGroups = NULL, grpSizes = NULL)

## Arguments

v

Source vector. If v is a positive integer, it will be converted to the sequence 1:v. If v is a negative integer, it will be converted to the sequence v:-1. All atomic types are supported (See is.atomic).

numGroups

An Integer. The number of groups that the vector will be partitioned into. The default is NULL. If provided and grpSize is NULL, it must divide the length of v (if v is a vector) or v (if v is a scalar).

grpSizes

A vector of whole numbers representing the size of each group. The default is NULL. If provided, the sum of the elements must total the length of v (if v is a vector) or v (if v is a scalar).

## Value

A numerical value representing the total number of partitions of groups.

## Note

When the number of results exceeds $$2^{53} - 1$$, a number of class bigz is returned.

## Examples

comboGroupsCount(16, 4)
#>  2627625
comboGroupsCount(16, grpSizes = c(1:4, 6))
#>  100900800
comboGroupsCount(28, grpSizes = rep(2:5, each = 2))
