Introductory material is balanced with extensive coverage of graphs, trees, recursion, algebra, theory of computing, and combinatorics. Extensive examples throughout the text reinforce concepts. More combinatorics/algebraic structures than in most books. Detailed discussion of and strong emphasis on proofs. Extensive, in-depth presentation of topics. Large selection of applied and computational problems, ranging from the elementary to the more advanced. More topics in probability and more statistical interpretations than other texts. Comprehensive discussion of topics such as finite state machines, automata, and languages. Earlier introduction of matrices and relations, Boolean algebras and circuits than most texts. Includes algorithms for many constructive tasks that occur in discrete systems.

This book was first published in 2003. Combinatorica, an extension to the popular computer algebra system Mathematica®, is the most comprehensive software available for teaching and research applications of discrete mathematics, particularly combinatorics and graph theory. This book is the definitive reference/user's guide to Combinatorica, with examples of all 450 Combinatorica functions in action, along with the associated mathematical and algorithmic theory. The authors cover classical and advanced topics on the most important combinatorial objects: permutations, subsets, partitions, and Young tableaux, as well as all important areas of graph theory: graph construction operations, invariants, embeddings, and algorithmic graph theory. In addition to being a research tool, Combinatorica makes discrete mathematics accessible in new and exciting ways to a wide variety of people, by encouraging computational experimentation and visualization. The book contains no formal proofs, but enough discussion to understand and appreciate all the algorithms and theorems it contains.

Die diskrete Mathematik ist im Begriff, zu einem der wichtigsten Gebiete der mathematischen Forschung zu werden mit Anwendungen in der Kryptographie, der linearen Programmierung, der Kodierungstheorie und Informatik. Dieses Buch richtet sich an Studenten der Mathematik und Informatik, die ein Gefühl dafür entwickeln möchten, worum es in der Mathematik geht, wobei Mathematik hilfreich sein kann, und mit welcher Art Fragen sich Mathematiker auseinandersetzen. Die Autoren stellen eine Anzahl ausgewählter Ergebnisse und Methoden der diskreten Mathematik vor, hauptsächlich aus den Bereichen Kombinatorik und Graphentheorie, teilweise aber auch aus der Zahlentheorie, der Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und der kombinatorischen Geometrie.Wo immer es möglich war, haben die Autoren Beweise und Problemlösungen verwendet, um den Studenten zu helfen, die Lösungen der Fragestellungen zu verstehen. Zusätzlich ist eine Vielzahl von Beispielen, Bildern und Übungsaufgaben über das Buch verteilt. László Lovász ist einer der Leiter der theoretischen Forschungsabteilung der Microsoft Corporation. Er hat 1999 den Wolf-Preis sowie den Gödel-Preis für die beste wissenschaftliche Veröffentlichung in der Informatik erhalten. József Pelikán ist Professor am Institut für Algebra und Zahlentheorie der Eötvös Loránd Universität in Budapest.

Combinatorial Methods with Computer Applications provides in-depth coverage of recurrences, generating functions, partitions, and permutations, along with some of the most interesting graph and network topics, design constructions, and finite geometries. Requiring only a foundation in discrete mathematics, it can serve as the textbook in a combinatorial methods course or in a combined graph theory and combinatorics course. After an introduction to combinatorics, the book explores six systematic approaches within a comprehensive framework: sequences, solving recurrences, evaluating summation expressions, binomial coefficients, partitions and permutations, and integer methods. The author then focuses on graph theory, covering topics such as trees, isomorphism, automorphism, planarity, coloring, and network flows. The final chapters discuss automorphism groups in algebraic counting methods and describe combinatorial designs, including Latin squares, block designs, projective planes, and affine planes. In addition, the appendix supplies background material on relations, functions, algebraic systems, finite fields, and vector spaces. Paving the way for students to understand and perform combinatorial calculations, this accessible text presents the discrete methods necessary for applications to algorithmic analysis, performance evaluation, and statistics as well as for the solution of combinatorial problems in engineering and the social sciences.

The advent of fast computers and the search for efficient algorithms revolutionized combinatorics and brought about the field of discrete mathematics. This book is an introduction to the main ideas and results of discrete mathematics, and with its emphasis on algorithms it should be interesting to mathematicians and computer scientists alike. The book is organized into three parts: enumeration, graphs and algorithms, and algebraic systems. There are 600 exercises with hints andsolutions to about half of them. The only prerequisites for understanding everything in the book are linear algebra and calculus at the undergraduate level. Praise for the German edition ... This book is a well-written introduction to discrete mathematics and is highly recommended to every student ofmathematics and computer science as well as to teachers of these topics. --Konrad Engel for MathSciNet Martin Aigner is a professor of mathematics at the Free University of Berlin. He received his PhD at the University of Vienna and has held a number of positions in the USA and Germany before moving to Berlin.
