Inside Symmetrica there are many routines working with the symmetric group. As partitions are labeling conjugacy classes and representations of the symmetric group they are a fundamental object.

There are different implementations of PARTITION objects. This method is simliar to the general method in the case of Symmetrica objects. Also in the case of PARTITION objects we use a tag to distinguish the different implementations.
