The Species type class, which defines a small DSL for describing combinatorial species. Other modules in this library provide specific instances which allow computing various properties of combinatorial species.

# The Species type class

class C s => Species s whereSource

The Species type class. Note that the `Differential`

constraint
requires s to be a differentiable ring, which means that every
instance must also implement instances for Algebra.Additive
(the species 0 and species addition, i.e. disjoint sum),
Algebra.Ring (the species 1 and species multiplication,
i.e. partitional product), and Algebra.Differential (species
differentiation, i.e. adjoining a distinguished element).

Minimal complete definition: `singleton`

, `set`

, `cycle`

, `o`

,
`cartesian`

, `fcomp`

, `ofSize`

.

Note that the `o`

operation can be used infix to suggest common
notation for composition, and also to be read as an abbreviation
for "of", as in "top o' the mornin'": ```
set `o` nonEmpty
sets
```

.

The species `X`

of singletons. Puts a singleton structure on an
underlying label set of size 1, and no structures on any other
underlying label sets. `x`

is also provided as a synonym.

The species `E`

of sets. Puts a singleton structure on *any*
underlying label set.

The species `C`

of cyclical orderings (cycles/rings).

The species `L`

of linear orderings (lists). Since linear
orderings are isomorphic to cyclic orderings with a hole, we
may take

as the default
implementation; `linOrd`

= `oneHole`

`cycle`

`linOrd`

is included in the `Species`

class so it
can be special-cased for enumeration.

The species `p`

of subsets is given by

. `subset`

= `set`

*
`set`

`subset`

is included in the `Species`

class so it can
be overridden when enumerating structures: by default the
enumeration code would generate a pair of the subset and its
complement, but normally when thinking about subsets we only
want to see the elements in the subset. To explicitly
enumerate subset/complement pairs, you can use

directly.
`set`

* `set`

Subsets of size exactly k,

. Included with a default definition
in the `ksubset`

k = (`set`

``ofSizeExactly`

` k) * `set`

`Species`

class for the same reason as `subset`

.

Structures of the species `e`

of elements are just elements of
the underlying set,

. Included
with a default definition in `element`

= `singleton`

* `set`

`Species`

class for the same
reason as `subset`

and `ksubset`

.

Partitional composition. To form all `(f ``

-structures on
the underlying label set U, first form all set partitions of U;
for each partition `o`

` g)`p`

, put an `f`

-structure on the classes of
`p`

, and a separate `g`

-structure on the elements in each
class.

Cartisian product of two species. An `(f `

-structure
consists of an `><`

g)`f`

-structure superimposed on a `g`

-structure over
the same underlying set.

Functor composition of two species. An `(f `

-structure
consists of an `@@`

g)`f`

-structure on the set of all `g`

-structures.

ofSize :: s -> (Integer -> Bool) -> sSource

Only put a structure on underlying sets whose size satisfies the predicate.

ofSizeExactly :: s -> Integer -> sSource

Only put a structure on underlying sets of the given size. A
default implementation of `ofSize (==k)`

is provided, but this
method is included in the `Species`

class as a special case
since it can be more efficient: we get to turn infinite lists
of coefficients into finite ones.

Don't put a structure on the empty set. The default definition
uses `ofSize`

; included in the `Species`

class so it can be
overriden in special cases (such as when reifying species
expressions).

rec :: ASTFunctor f => f -> sSource

'rec f' is the least fixpoint of (the interpretation of) the
higher-order species constructor `f`

.

Omega is the pseudo-species which only puts a structure on infinite label sets. Of course this is not really a species, but it is sometimes a convenient fiction to use Omega to stand in for recursive occurrences of a species.

# Convenience methods

oneHole :: Species s => s -> sSource

A convenient synonym for differentiation.

-structures look like `oneHole`

f`f`

-structures on a set formed by adjoining
a distinguished "hole" element to the underlying set.

## Plurals

It can be grammatically convenient to define plural
versions of species as synonyms for the singular versions.
For example, we can use

instead of `set`

``o`

` `nonEmpty`

`sets`

.
`set`

``o`

` `nonEmpty`

`set`

# Derived operations

Some derived operations on species.

# Derived species

Some species that can be defined in terms of the primitive species operations.

partitions :: Species s => sSource

permutation :: Species s => sSource

A permutation is a set of disjoint cycles:

.
`permutation`

= `set`

``o`

` `cycles`

permutations :: Species s => sSource

simpleGraph :: Species s => sSource

Simple graphs (undirected, without loops). A simple graph is a
subset of the set of all size-two subsets of the vertices:

.
`simpleGraph`

= `subset`

`@@`

(`ksubset`
