# PetscDTEnumPerm

Get a permutation of n integers from its encoding into the integers [0, n!) as a sequence of swaps. A permutation can be described by the operations that convert the lists [0, 1, ..., n-1] into the permutation, by a sequence of swaps, where the ith step swaps whatever number is in ith position with a number that is in some position j >= i. This swap is encoded as the difference (j - i). The difference d_i at step i is less than (n - i). This sequence of n-1 differences [d_0, ..., d_{n-2}] is encoded as the number (n-1)! * d_0 + (n-2)! * d_1 + ... + 1! * d_{n-2}.

### Input Arguments

 n - a non-negative integer (see note about limits below) k - an integer in [0, n!)

### Output Arguments

 perm - the permuted list of the integers [0, ..., n-1] isOdd - if not NULL, returns wether the permutation used an even or odd number of swaps.

Note: this is limited to n such that n! can be represented by PetscInt, which is 12 if PetscInt is a signed 32-bit integer and 20 if PetscInt is a signed 64-bit integer.
