### Does there exist a canonical form for normal matrices which extends the following embedding?

Given an unordered pair of complex numbers $\{w,z\}$, we can associate to it the complex matrix \frac 1 2\left[\begin{matrix}w + z + \frac{\left(w - z\right)^{2} + \left|{w - z}\right|^{2}}{2 \left|{...

### Counting multisets satisfying a fixed property

Suppose $S$ is a infinite set and $R\subset S$ is also infinite. Now, we want to find the number of multisets $(M,\nu)$, with $M\subset S, |(M,\nu)|=n$, and having an additional property that for ...

### An equation involving multisets

For finite multisets $A, B, C, A', B', C'$, if $A \uplus B \uplus \{B \uplus C\} \uplus \{A \uplus \{C\}\}$ = $A' \uplus B' \uplus \{B' \uplus C'\} \uplus \{A' \uplus \{C'\}\}$, must $A=A',B=B',C=C'$, ...

### The category of Multisets and Spans: morphism composition and tensor product

I have been thinking about multisets for a while. These are sets where elements can repeat, so $S =\{ a,a,b,c,b\}$ is a multiset on the set $A = \{a,b,c\}$. I have also been looking into morphisms ...

### The combinations of a finite multiset [closed]

Suppose there is a basket $S$ containing $3\ \color{blue}{blue}$, $2\ \color{green}{green}$ and $1\ \color{red}{red}$ balls. A subject can extract any $k$ number of balls (including $0$) at random ...

### Counting Specific Permutations of Elements in a Multiset

I have a question regarding counting permutations of a multiset's elements. The problem is the following: Given a multi-set $M=\{0^{m}, 1^{n-m}\}$ the number of all possible permutations of its ...

### What is the fastest way to sort numbers lexicographically?

I have $N$ sequences of numbers. None of them is longer than $10^6$. I want to sort those sequences lexicographically. For example, given sequences {1, 2, 4}, {1, 2, 3}, {2, 5, 7}, {2}, I want to have ...

### A natural sum over multisets (expectation over multinomial)

I think this is a natural question but am not sure where to find resources. Consider the possible multisets arising from choosing $n$ times an item from one of $k$ categories. We can represent one ...
