# Number of Partitions of an n-kilogram Stone into Minimum Number of Weights to Weigh All Integral Weights from 1 to n kg(s) on a Two-pan Balance

@article{Islam2015NumberOP, title={Number of Partitions of an n-kilogram Stone into Minimum Number of Weights to Weigh All Integral Weights from 1 to n kg(s) on a Two-pan Balance}, author={M. Islam and Md. Shahidul Islam}, journal={arXiv: Combinatorics}, year={2015} }

We find out the number of different partitions of an n-kilogram stone into the minimum number of parts so that all integral weights from 1 to n kilograms can be weighed in one weighing using the parts of any of the partitions on a two-pan balance. In comparison to the traditional partitions, these partitions have advantage where there is a constraint on total weight of a set and the number of parts in the partition. They may have uses in determining the optimal size and number of weights and… Expand
