Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Suitable for self-study or a first course in combinatorics at the undergraduate level, How to Count: An Introduction to Combinatorics, Second Edition follows a similar approach to its predecessor. This second edition continues to focus on counting problems and emphasize a problem solving approach. It includes a new chapter on graph theory and many more exercises, some with full solutions or hints. The authors provide proofs of all significant results and illustrate applications from other areas of mathematics, such as elementary ideas from analysis in proving Stirling's formula. A solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.
