Davidson has pointed out that enumeration problems in chemistry can be solved by using the Redfield-Read superposition theorem, which was originally established by Redfield, rediscovered independently by Read and later refocussed by several mathematicians.[4, 5] Lloyd has actually applied this theorem to chemical enumerations. All of these methods are capable of enumerating chemical objects with respect only to their weights (molecular formulas).
