Applied Combinatorics. Fifth Edition

November 23, 2007

This book puts an emphasis on the systematic analysis of different possibilities, the exploration of the logical structure of a problem, and ingenuity. Its aim is to develop proficiency in basic discrete maths problem-solving in the way that a calculus text develops proficiency in basic analysis problem-solving. The text includes a large number of useful exercises.

Who is it for? Students on discrete and finite mathematics courses.

Changes since last edition: Updated with new material - new examples, expanded discussions, additional exercises throughout the text.

Presentation: This is a well-structured text that addresses a broad range of topics within discrete mathematics. It is well presented, written clearly and easy to follow.

Would you recommend it? Yes.
