A mathematical gem–freshly cleaned and polished

This book is intended to be used as the text for a first course in combinatorics. the text has been shaped by two goals, namely, to make complex mathematics accessible to students with a wide range of abilities, interests, and motivations; and to create a pedagogical tool, useful to the broad spectrum of instructors who bring a variety of perspectives and expectations to such a course.

Features retained from the first edition:

  • Lively and engaging writing style
  • Timely and appropriate examples
  • Numerous well-chosen exercises
  • Flexible modular format
  • Optional sections and appendices

Highlights of Second Edition enhancements:

  • Smoothed and polished exposition, with a sharpened focus on key ideas
  • Expanded discussion of linear codes
  • New optional section on algorithms
  • Greatly expanded hints and answers section
  • Many new exercises and examples
