### [R] Non repetitive permutations/combinations of elements

Hello all, I am trying to create a matrix of 1s and -1s without any repetitions for a specified number of columns. e.g. 1s and -1s for 3 columns can be done uniquely in 2^3 ways. -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 1 -1 1 -1 -1 1 1 1 -1 -1 1 -1 1 1 1 -1 1 1 1 and for 4 columns in 2^4 ways and so on. I finally used the function combn([0 1],3) that I found at the following link http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/loadFile.do?objectId=7147&objectType=FILE written by Jos van der Geest in Matlab which generated the above. How can I do this is R? I have looked at permn and combn in the combinat library and permutations and combinations in the gtools library and I am still confused as to how to get it to work. Any suggestions will be truly appreciated. Thank you Nameeta ------------------------------------------------- This email is intended only for the use of the individual or...{{dropped}}

Alternate solution with the combinat package: m <- hcube(c(2, 2, 2)) m[m==1] <- -1 m[m==2] <- 1 Gabor On Mon, May 08, 2006 at 03:45:37PM -0600, Greg Snow wrote:> Try expand.grid: > > expand.grid( c(-1,1), c(-1,1), c(-1,1) ) > > > -- > Gregory (Greg) L.
