The importance of discrete mathematics has increased dramatically with in the last few years but until now, it has been difficult-if not impo ssible-to find a single reference book that effectively covers the sub ject. To fill that void, The Handbook of Discrete and Combinatorial Ma thematics presents a comprehensive collection of ready reference mater ial for all of the important areas of discrete mathematics, including those essential to its applications in computer science and engineerin g.
