Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Combinatorics is the study of how discrete sets are arranged, counted, and constructed. This book details several general theories: the Ramsey theory, the Plya theory of counting, and the probabilistic method. It provides a basic framework in which to introduce fundamental results, discuss interconnections and problem solving techniques, and collect open problems.
