I would have thought the current answer works, so please edit your post to a very explicit example. By the nature of sets, their is only one of each element! Or do you mean multisets, or just want partitions? Thanks!

@ndomes But it keeps only one 1 in the list.But i want to write set([1,1,2,2,2,3,4,5]) in partition form.That means i want output to be the list [5,4,3,2,2,2,1,1].Could you please tell me how to do it?

by definition, a set has no duplicate entries.
