On this website you can
- generate combinatorial objects with parameters of your choice
- explore various combinatorial algorithms
- download free source code for those algorithms (GNU General Public License)
Have fun exploring!
The Combinatorial Object Server was first launched by Frank Ruskey
at the University of Victoria (Canada).
The original website has been shut down for some time, and this new version has been relaunched in 2018 by Torsten Mütze
, Joe Sawada
and Aaron Williams
We plan to bring the original Combinatorial Object Server content back online step by step, and to extend it by new material.
This website also provides an experimental interface to many of the combinatorial algorithms that are part of the FXT library
written by Jörg Arndt, to the nauty toolsuite
written by Brendan McKay, and to the plantri and fullgen tool
written by Gunnar Brinkmann and Brendan McKay.
This website is intended as a community project, and welcomes your contributions and feedback (new algorithms/code/references)!
All code is available via the public GIT repository https://gitlab.com/tmuetze81/cos
Please also let us know when you find the material on this website useful for your research.
We are always interested to hear when people are using our work.
