Abstract. A tree-backtracking-based technique, permutation tree generation with Anterior-items-in-an-array for Remaining Distinct Elements (ARDE), is introduced for multiset and pure permutations. We analyze the algorithm at the assembly level and obtain its time formula for pure permutations. We mathematically prove that our time formula is 11.5% faster than the corresponding formula of the previous fastest algorithm for pure permutations for any length N > 3. We also offer related source codes and executable files on our website for others to use.
