The format of this book is unique in that it combines features of a traditional text with those of a problem book. The material is presented through a series of problems, about 250 in all, with connecting text; this is supplemented by 250 additional problems suitable for homework assignment. The problems are structured in order to introduce concepts in a logical order and in a thought-provoking way. The first four sections of the book deal with basic combinatorial entities; the last four cover special counting methods. Many applications to probability are included along the way. Students from a wide range of backgrounds--mathematics, computer science, or engineering--will appreciate this appealing introduction.

Book Description:

This book is unique in that it combines features of a traditional text with those of a problem book. The material is presented through a series of problems with connecting text. The problems are structured in order to introduce concepts in a logical order, and in a thought-provoking way.

Review:

This book is a good supplemental resource for an instructor to a more substantial textbook at the mathematics graduate level...What this book does extremely well is to connect the problems together and consequently tie the concepts together. --Myriam Abramson, SIGACT News
