This balanced and comprehensive treatment of topics in discrete mathematics and statistical design raises new questions and assesses potential difficulties surrounding various techniques. Covers a broad range of topics, from counting and enumeration techniques to graphs and networks, combinatorial and statistical designs, and partially ordered sets. Presents several methods of construction, many appearing for the first time in book form. Theory is carefully developed and presented in a conversational way that gears readers toward important new ideas and illustrates the necessity of introducing new techniques. Also examines the practical applications of results. Two entire sections are devoted to Polya's and DeBruign's enumeration of results, presenting them in the form of step-by-step recipes, ready for use by research workers.
