COMMENTS

A set partition is crossing if it has two blocks of the form {...x...y...}, {...z...t...} where x < z < y < t or z < x < t < y, and capturing if it has two blocks of the form {...x...y...}, {...z...t...} where x < z < t < y or z < x < y < t. Capturing is a weaker condition than nesting, so for example {{1,3,5},{2,4}} is capturing but not nesting.
