This chapter describes functions for creating and manipulating combinations. A combination c is represented by an array of k integers in the range 0 to n-1, where each value c_i occurs at most once. The combination c corresponds to indices of k elements chosen from an n element vector. Combinations are useful for iterating over all k-element subsets of a set.

The functions described in this chapter are defined in the header file gsl_combination.h.
