Now with solutions to selected problems, Applied Combinatorics, Second Edition presents the tools of combinatorics from an applied point of view. This bestselling textbook offers numerous references to the literature of combinatorics and its applications that enable readers to delve more deeply into the topics.
After introducing fundamental counting rules and the tools of graph theory and relations, the authors focus on three basic problems of combinatorics: The text then covers combinatorial design, coding theory, and special problems in graph theory.
It also illustrates the basic ideas of combinatorial optimization through a study of graphs and networks. The book has been substantially rewritten with more than pages of new materials and many changes in the exercises.
There are also many new examples to reflect the new developments in computer science and biology since This book is one of the rare ones that does the job really well. It is suitable for motivated math, computer science or engineering sophomores and even beginning graduate students.

In fact bright high school students would love this book and if combinatorifs are exposed early through reading this book and being guided by their teachersmany of them might end up doing combinatorics for their careers! I really love this book. It is a gem. They cover both theoretical aspects and practical problems from applid scientific research in various areas, such as biology and telecommunications. It is so much fun to just open the book at random and explore the material that jumps out of ttessman pages.
This is an overwhelmingly complete introductory textbook in combinatorics. It not only covers nearly every topic in the subject, but gives several realistic applications for each topic.
The writing style is excellent. The motivating examples are a truly strong point for the text. No other text with which I am familiar comes even close to the number of applications presented here.
This book is a required textbook for my graduate course in discrete mathematics. Both my students and I have found it to be an excellent resource with interesting application examples from a variety of fields interspersed throughout the text. The book is very well organized wpplied clearly reinforces both the practical and theoretical understanding in a way students are able to correlate. Because the level of difficulty for selected problems range from simple to challenging, it makes an appropriate roberte for junior, senior, and graduate students alike.
But what really sets it apart is its impressive use of tedsman. I know of no other text which comes close. There are entire sections devoted to subjects like computing voting power, counting organic compounds built up from benzene rings, and the use of orthogonal arrays in cryptography.
This really helps them to understand the mathematics and also to see how this field is useful in the real world.

The first two thirds of the book is pretty standard, but the last third goes into detail on cmobinatorics of the modern theory including Hadamard matrices, Euler paths on graphs and Latin squares.
It is good enough robrts I’m going to buy my own copy after reading a library copy. It doesn’t mention Vega triangle free graphs, but it gives one a better chance at modern roherts theory than three other books that I have.
The close relationship of graph theory to group theory, geometry and Cartan lie algebras isn’t covered either. Simple book, good problems, doesn’t overcomplicate a simple subject.
Four stars just because it could be clearer by the middle of the book, the author is making certain small errors such as introducing concepts out of order, or introducing in passing a major concept tess,an lingering for a longer time on a minor onebut it’s one of the better textbooks I’ve ever had.
This IS the final word on the subject. It is a great reference for combinatorics. It is as good for people encountering the subject for the first time, as for much more advanced learners, it has sections for both. I particularly liked the section on Polya’s Theorem, it’s the clearest explanation I’ve ever encountered in any mathematical text much better than in Shiffrin’s Abstract Algebra Roherts highly recommend. Smooth any easy going.
Recommended by one of my professors. Fairly clear and useful when I need to clarify something gone over in class. A textbook for my college-aged child – I guess it’s good – I don’t really understand any of it. This book continues CRC’s fine tradition of putting out definitive texts on a technical field.
The amount of material on combinatorics is exceedingly non-trivial. I suspect few readers will actually take this book apart cover to cover. Which is a pity, because the coverage of algorithms is comprehensive and lucidly explained. However, the problems for each chapter in the current book are simpler. There are few of the truly hard exercises that Knuth robefts sprinkled throughout his books. What you may want to do with this book is perhaps only read the chapters relevant to your needs.
Given on your part a reasonable pre-existing background in computing and combinatorics, apllied the book has a key property that its chapters are largely independent of each other.
