Introduction to Enumerative and Analytic Combinatorics fills the gap between introductory texts in discrete mathematics and advanced graduate texts in enumerative combinatorics. The book first deals with basic counting principles, compositions and partitions, and generating functions. It then focuses on the structure of permutations, graph enumeration, and extremal combinatorics. Lastly, the text discusses supplemental topics, including error-correcting codes, properties of sequences, and magic squares. Strengthening the analytic flavor of the book, this Second Edition: Features a new chapter on analytic combinatorics and new sections on advanced applications of generating functions Demonstrates powerful techniques that do not require the residue theorem or complex integration Adds new exercises to all chapters, significantly extending coverage of the given topics Introduction to Enumerative and Analytic Combinatorics, Second Edition makes combinatorics more accessible, increasing interest in this rapidly expanding field.

What Is Combinatorics Anyway? Broadly speaking, combinatorics is the branch of mathematics dealing with different ways of selecting objects from a set or arranging objects. It tries to answer two major kinds of questions, namely, counting questions: how many ways can a selection or arrangement be chosen with a particular set of properties; and structural questions: does there exist a selection or arrangement of objects with a particular set of properties? The authors have presented a text for students at all levels of preparation. For some, this will be the first course where the students see several real proofs. Others will have a good background in linear algebra, will have completed the calculus stream, and will have started abstract algebra. The text starts by briefly discussing several examples of typical combinatorial problems to give the reader a better idea of what the subject covers. The next chapters explore enumerative ideas and also probability. It then moves on to enumerative functions and the relations between them, and generating functions and recurrences., Important families of functions, or numbers and then theorems are presented. Brief introductions to computer algebra and group theory come next. Structures of particular interest in combinatorics: posets, graphs, codes, Latin squares, and experimental designs follow. The authors conclude with further discussion of the interaction between linear algebra and combinatorics. Features Two new chapters on probability and posets. Numerous new illustrations, exercises, and problems. More examples on current technology use A thorough focus on accuracy Three appendices: sets, induction and proof techniques, vectors and matrices, and biographies with historical notes, Flexible use of MapleTM and MathematicaTM

This is the Second Edition of the highly successful introduction to the use of generating functions and series in combinatorial mathematics. This new edition includes several new areas of application, including the cycle index of the symmetric group, permutations and square roots, counting polyominoes, and exact covering sequences. An appendix on using the computer algebra programs MAPLE(r) and Mathematica(r) to generate functions is also included. The book provides a clear, unified introduction to the basic enumerative applications of generating functions, and includes exercises and solutions, many new, at the end of each chapter. Key Features * Provides new applications on the cycle index of the symmetric group, permutations and square roots, counting polyominoes, and exact covering sequences * Features an Appendix on using MAPLE(r) and Mathematica (r) to generate functions * Includes many new exercises with complete solutions at the end of each chapter

Notes On The Binomial Transform: Theory And Table With Appendix On Stirling Transform

The binomial transform is a discrete transformation of one sequence into another with many interesting applications in combinatorics and analysis. This volume is helpful to researchers interested in enumerative combinatorics, special numbers, and classical analysis. A valuable reference, it can also be used as lecture notes for a course in binomial identities, binomial transforms and Euler series transformations. The binomial transform leads to various combinatorial and analytical identities involving binomial coefficients. In particular, we present here new binomial identities for Bernoulli, Fibonacci, and harmonic numbers. Many interesting identities can be written as binomial transforms and vice versa. The volume consists of two parts. In the first part, we present the theory of the binomial transform for sequences with a sufficient prerequisite of classical numbers and polynomials. The first part provides theorems and tools which help to compute binomial transforms of different sequences and also to generate new binomial identities from the old. These theoretical tools (formulas and theorems) can also be used for summation of series and various numerical computations. In the second part, we have compiled a list of binomial transform formulas for easy reference. In the Appendix, we present the definition of the Stirling sequence transform and a short table of transformation formulas. Contents: Theory of the Binomial Transform: Introduction Prerequisite: Special Numbers and Polynomials Euler's Transformation for Series Melzak's Formula and Related Formulas Special Properties. Creating New Identities Binomial Transforms of Products Special Formulas and Power Series with Binomial Sums Table of Binomial Transforms: Assorted Binomial Formulas Identities Involving Harmonic Numbers Transforms of Binomial Coefficients Transforms of Special Numbers and Polynomials Transforms of Trigonometric and Hyperbolic Functions and Applications to Some Trigonometric Integrals Transforms of Some Special Functions Appendix: The Stirling Transform of Sequences Readership: Graduate and researchers in the areas of number theory, discrete mathematics, combinatorics, statistics working with applications using the binomial transform. Keywords: Binomial Coefficients;Binomial Identities;Binomial Sums;Binomial Transform;Euler's Series Transformation;Discrete Mathematics;Finite Differences;Stirling Numbers of the First Kind;Stirling Numbers of the Second Kind;Stirling Transform;Special Numbers and Polynomials;Harmonic Numbers;Bernoulli Numbers;Fibonacci Numbers;Melzak's Formula;Exponential Polynomials;Geometric Polynomials;Laguerre Polynomials;Trigonometric IntegralsReview: Key Features: This is the first, long-overdue book on the subject. (At present, there are no competing books) The book provides interesting new material for researchers in discrete mathematics and will serve as a valuable reference for binomial identities, binomial transform formulas, and Euler series transformations

Das vorliegende Buch besteht aus zwei Teilen. Teil I enthält einen axiomatischen Aufbau der euklidischen Geometrie auf Grund eines Axiomensystems von Tarski, das in einem gewissen Sinne (auch für die absolute Geometrie) gleichwertig ist mit dem Hilbertschen Axiomensystem, aber formalisiert ist in einer Sprache, die für die Betrachtungen in Teil II besonders geeignet ist. Mehrere solche Axio mensysteme wurden schon vor langer Zeit von Tarski veröffentlicht. Hier wird nun die Durchführung eines Aufbaus der Geometrie auf Grund eines solchen Axiomensystems - unter Benutzung von Resultaten von H. N. Gupta - allgemein zugänglich gemacht. Die vorliegende Darstel lung wurde vom zuerst genannten Autor allein geschrieben, aber sie beruht zum Teil auf unveröffentlichten Resultaten von Alfred Tarski und Wanda Szmielew; daher gebührt ihnen ein Teil der Autorschaft. Mehr über Entstehung und Inhalt von Teil I sowie über die Geschichte der Tarskischen Axiomensysteme wird in der Einleitung (Abschnitt I.O) gesagt. Teil II enthält metamathematische Untersuchungen und Ergebnisse über verschiedene Geometrien, was vielfac~ auf eine Anwendung von Methoden und Sätzen der mathematischen Logik auf Geometrien hinausläuft (vgl.
