Overview

Alan Tucker's newest issue of Applied Combinatorics builds on the previous editions with more in depth analysis of computer systems in order to help develop proficiency in basic discrete math problem solving. As one of the most widely used book in combinatorial problems, this edition explains how to reason and model combinatorically while stressing the systematic analysis of different possibilities, exploration of the logical structure of a problem, and ingenuity.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This text for undergraduate and beginning graduate students in computer science and mathematics covers the theory and application of combinatorial reasoning. Tucker (mathematics, Stony Brook) begins with a discussion of the elements of graph theory before moving on to enumeration. The systematic analysis of different possibilities, the exploration of the logical structure of a problem, and ingenuity are emphasized throughout the text. Annotation c.
