1 Problem Set #6 solutios A juggler colors idetical jugglig balls red, white, ad blue (a I how may ways ca this be doe if each color is used at least oce? Let us preemptively color oe ball i each color, so that the 9 remaiig balls may be colored ay way we like This is a questio of partitioig 9 idetical items ito distict classes, alteratively, it could be cosidered as a oegative iteger solutio to the problem x + x + x = 9 I either case, the correct eumerator is ( ( 9+ = = 55 (b I how may ways ca this be doe if each color is used at least three times? We proceed above, but istead we preemptively color three balls i each color, leavig oly balls left over to be freely colored; here our eumerator will thus be ( ( + = 5 = 0 We could i fact eumerate these maually: there are three colorigs i which there are balls of two colors ad 6 of the remaider, six colorigs i which there are,, ad 5 balls i three distict colors, ad oe colorig i which there are balls of each color 8 (a I how may ways ca idetical cois be distributed to four differet persos if each perso receives at least oe coi? This is much as i the previous problem: preemptively had out oe coi to each perso, ad the partitio the remaiig 8 cois freely This is couted by ( 8+ ( = = 65 (b I how may ways ca differet books be distributed to four idetical boxes if each box receives exactly three books? There are several approaches to this problem: oe is to partitio the books amog distiguishable boxes i (,,, ways, ad the, realizig that each partitio is! represeted by! differet arragemets of boxes, divide by! to get ways!!!!! of arragig the books Alteratively, oe may umber the books (for istace, ad cosider the boxig of the books as a selectio process We select book ad two other books to accompay it ay of ( ways; the we take out the lowestumbered book remaiig, ad associate it with two of the remaiig 8 books i ( 8 ways; the we agai take the lowestumbered book ad box it with two of the remaiig 5 books i ( 5 ways; ad lastly, we take the remaiig lowestumbered book, ad box it up with the remaiig books i ( ways! These two approaches, of course, yield the same result: = ( ( 8 5!!!!! ( ( = 500 (c Compute the umber of ways to partitio a set of differet objects ito four oempty subsets The partitio is ot explicitly ordered ad partitio of a set ito uordered subsets is the precise defiitio of the Stirlig umber, so here the quatity desired is simply S(, =!

2 Problem Set #6 solutios 0 Explai the followig formulas: (a S(, = ( There are two possible explaatios: either a algebraic demostratio of equality or ( costructio of a bijectio betwee quatities eumerated by S(, ad The algebra is possible but difficult; the combiatorial costructio is actually far simpler Note that S(, eumerates the partitios of {,,,, } ito oempty, uordered subsets Such a partitio would cosist of sets of size ad oe set of size Thus, the partitios are uiquely determied by the choice of twoelemet set, sice the rest of ay give partitio ca be recostructed by placig every elemet of {,,, } ot appearig i the twoelemet set i a sigleto set by itself Thus, oempty partitios of a elemet set ito ( subsets, which are eumerated with S(, are i a bijective correspodece to choices of a sigle twoelemet subset of a elemet set, which are eumerated with ( ( Thus, S(, = (b S(, = ( ( + The combiatorial proof of this follows closely the surjectio argumet from problem (appearig o problem set # Here S(, eumerates partitios of {,,,, } ito oempty, uordered subsets This ca occur i two differet ways: either we partitio {,,,, } ito sigletos ad a triplet, or ito sigletos ad two pairs Let A ad B be sets cosistig of these two types of partitios respectively : it is clear that A B = ad that A B is the set of all partitios of {,,,, } ito subsets Thus, S(, = A B = A + B, ad our aim is to bijectively map A ad B oto sets eumerated with ( ( ad A partitio i A is uiquely determied by its triplet, sice the remaider of the partitio ca be recostructed by placig every elemet of {,, } ot appearig i the triplet ito a sigleto Thus, elemets of A ca be bijectively mapped to elemet subsets of {,, }, demostratig that A = ( A partitio i B is uiquely determied by the two pairs occurrig therei, sice, as above, the partitio ca be recostructed by placig every elemet ot occurrig i the pairs i a sigleto We may eumerate B thus by coutig the umber of pairs of pairs If we choose four elemets to belog to these pairs, we may do so i ( ways; but the, the assigmet of elemets to two pairs may occur i ay of ways: {a, b} ad {c, d}; {a, c} ad {b, d}; or {a, d} ad {b, c} Thus, there are ( ways to choose two pairs as extraordiary parts of a partitio 6 (a I how may ways ca idetical objects be distributed to five differet boxes if the first two boxes receive o more tha two balls each?

The most straightforward approach to this (that I ca devise is a casewise cosideratio: there are ie possibilities for the first two boxes cotaiig aywhere from zero to four objects, ad the remaider of the objects are distributed amog the remaiig boxes A table summarizig calculatios associated with these ie cases (which ca be reduced to 6 usig symmetry is below: Box Box # selectios # remaider placemets Total cofiguratios ( 0 0 ( ( ( ( 0 0 ( ( 0 ( ( ( 0 ( 0 ( ( 0 ( ( ( 0 ( ( ( ( ( ( ( ( ( ( ( ( Page of 7 February 8, 008
