# SameTest using in summation over a list

I have a list

list00 =
{ E^(-0.6830132/t), E^(-0.6830131/t), E^(-0.6830134/t), E^(-0.68301335/t),
E^(-0.18301321/t),E^(-0.18301341/t), E^(-0.1830133/t) , E^(0.183013/t),
E^(0.1830132/t) ,E^(0.6830132/t)};


Actually I want to have a summation result as:4E^(-0.683013/t)+3E^(-0.183013/t)+2E^(0.183013/t)+E^(0.683013/t)

In fact the numbers are in another list

list =
{-0.6830132, -0.6830131, -0.6830134,-0.68301335,
-0.18301321, -0.18301341, -0.1830133 , 0.183013, 0.1830132 ,0.6830132};


I have used of Sum[E^(list[[k]]/t),{k,Length[list]})]

You can just round the result, and then they are the same number.

Total[E^(Round[list, 10.^-6]/t)]
(* 4 E^(-0.683013/t) + 3 E^(-0.183013/t) +
2 E^(0.183013/t) + E^(0.683013/t) *)


The Exp and Round function are listable, so you don't need an explicit call to Sum. But if you wanted one,

Sum[ E^(Round[list[[k]], 10.^-6]/t), {k, Length[list]}]


Edit You can also use SetPrecision

Total@Exp[ SetPrecision[list, 6]/t]

(* 4 E^(-0.683013/t) + 3 E^(-0.183013/t) +
2 E^(0.183013/t) + E^(0.683013/t) *)


But I don't see an equivalent to SameTest for Plus

list = {-0.6830132, -0.6830131, -0.6830134, -0.68301335, -0.18301321, \
-0.18301341, -0.1830133, 0.183013, 0.1830132, 0.6830132};


To use of Mean of the values in each cluster

Tr[Length[#]*E^(Mean[#]/t) & /@ GatherBy[list, Round[#, 10^-6] &]] uni = Union[list, SameTest -> (Abs[#1 - #2] < 10^-4 &)] Total[Range[Length@uni, 1, -1] E^(uni/t)] • besides thanks for answer but I cannot use of Union in general. Union lessens my elements. It is true for this case only, because my coefficients are 4...3...2...1 but for a general case I cannot use of Union!!! Jan 8 '16 at 14:06
