Summary
"Introductory text for newcomers, whether students or professional mathematicians Includes more than 650 exercises. Each chapter includes a highlight section discussing in detail an elegant or famous result. Combinatorial enumeration is a readily accessible subject full of easily stated, but sometimes tantalizingly difficult problems. This book leads the reader in a leisurely way from the basic notions of combinatorial enumeration to a variety of topics, ranging from algebra to statistical physics. The aim of the author is to introduce readers to a fascinating field, and to offer a sophisticated source of information for the professional mathematician who wants to learn more about the subject. The book is organized in three parts: Basics, Methods, and Topics. There are 666 exercises, and as a special feature every chapter ends with a highlight section, discussing in detail a particularly beautiful or famous result."--Publisher's website
