# Re: [tlaplus] Strategies to avoid exploring symmetric combinations in non-model values?

If the order doesn't matter, could you instead use a bag? Then all three of your sequences would map to the same value (1 :> 1 @@ 2 :> 1 @@ 3 :> 1). If you needed to convert it back to a sequence, you could use FoldFunction with Append to pick an arbitrary sequence representation of the bag.

Let's say that I have a set of integers, and I totally need them to be numbers and not model values so that they are comparable and I can perform arithmetic. Eg.:

Vals == 1..5
Tuples = Vals \X Vals \X Vals
with (t \in Tuples){
...
}

But then in my particular problem I know that <<1,2,3>> is equivalent to <<3,1,2>> and <<2,3,1>>. Is there some way of filtering Tuples so that I can avoid exploring the two latter equivalent cases? Ideally the solution should scale to long sequences, not just 3 elements.

It would be nice if I could define a set of symmetric values in the model overview form.
Or if I could define an external generator coded in Java that I could plug in into the spec. That way I could keep track of already generated states in the Java code and only return non-equivalent combinations.
Or maybe have TLA+ accept some external file that I could generate with a programming language of my choice.
