How do I auto-beam in asymmetrical times signatures? For example, 7/16 may decompose as (2+2+3)/16, (4+3)/16, (3+2+2)/16.

You look at doc section 6.4.4 Automatic beams

You could also look at the "tips and tricks" documents (beam-auto- *.ly), or
search examples in LSR.

Thank you for the reply. The rule seems to only work when decomposing the time signature in two parts. For example 7 = 4 + 3 works fine using
\time 7/16
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 7 16) 4 16)
But what do I write if I want to use 7 = 2 + 2 + 3 (or 13 = 4 + 4 + 2 + 3)?
