### Inheritance principle and some bounded sequence problems

#### Abstract

In this paper, we propose an inheritance principle for combinatorial algorithm design. Based on the principle we extend the bounded sequence problem presented in [4] to some special bounded sequence problems and solve them by shorter algorithms. Then we apply these algorithms to solve some well-known combinatorial problems, such as subset problem, multi-subset problem, *k*-element subset problem and partition problem.
