Synopsis

A Course in Combinatorics by J. H. (Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, The Netherlands) van Lint, R. M. (California Institute of Technology) Wilson

This is the second edition of a popular book on combinatorics, a subject dealing with ways of arranging and distributing objects, and which involves ideas from geometry, algebra and analysis. The breadth of the theory is matched by that of its applications, which include topics as diverse as codes, circuit design and algorithm complexity. It has thus become essential for workers in many scientific fields to have some familiarity with the subject. The authors have tried to be as comprehensive as possible, dealing in a unified manner with, for example, graph theory, extremal problems, designs, colorings and codes. The depth and breadth of the coverage make the book a unique guide to the whole of the subject. The book is ideal for courses on combinatorical mathematics at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. Working mathematicians and scientists will also find it a valuable introduction and reference.

Reviews

'Both for the professional with a passing interest in combinatorics and for the students for whom it is primarily intended, this is a valuable book.'
The Times Higher Education Supplement

'... it will no doubt become a standard choice among the many texts on combinatorics ... fascinating ... it is highly recommended reading.'
Dieter Jungnichel, Zentralblatt MATH

'This well written textbook can be highly recommended to any student of combinatorics and, because of its breadth, has many new things to tell researchers in the field also.'
EMS

'This is a fascinating introduction to almost all aspects of combinatorics. Plenty of interesting problems, concrete examples, useful notes and references complement the main text. This book can be highly recommended to everyone interested in combinatorics.'
Monatshefe fur Mathematik

'... becoming a modern classic ... every good student should progress to this book at some stage: it is a wonderful source of elegant proofs and tantalising examples. No-one will find it easy, but every budding or established combinatorialist will be enriched by it ... This text is unashamedly and impressively mathematical; it will challenge and inform every reader and is a very significant achievement.'
The Mathematical Gazette
