A COURSE IN ENUMERATION AIGNER PDF
Take counting, for example. We all learn how to count things in grade school, and for much of our elementary education we think that this is the end of the story. We start to learn that there are often subtleties involved in counting. Students who go further and pick up books such as Proofs That Really Count , by Benjamin and Quinn, or A Path To Combinatorics for Undergraduates , by Andreescu and Feng, will see more of these issues and really start to understand the beauty as well as the difficulty that counting can sometimes pose. But even that is not the end of the story. The book is divided into three parts: the first part is about "Basics" and actually starts at a very elementary level, discussing the inclusion-exclusion principle and binomial coefficients. But the basics soon get much less basic as Aigner delves into Stirling numbers, lattice paths, generating functions, and infinite matrices.

A Course in Enumeration — Martin Aigner — Google Books Description Combinatorial enumeration is a readily accessible subject full of easily stated, but sometimes tantalizingly difficult problems. Chapter one covers elementary counting principles, binomial coefficients, Stirling numbers, permutations, number partitions and lattice paths, with fundamental coefficients as a kind of unifying idea.

One of the appealing features of combinatorics is that many of its motivating problems are simply stated, and that is certainly the case here. To give just a few examples: chapter two ends with a look at the probability that a random walk on a d-dimensional integer lattice eventually returns to the origin; chapter six considers questions such as how many different necklaces can be created with n beads of r possible colours, and chapter ten begins by asking how many tilings of a chessboard with dominoes are possible. Some problems like this can be solved using only simple methods, though the solutions may be hard to find, but A Course in Enumeration develops tools that allow them to be solved systematically and generally. Chapter one covers elementary counting principles, binomial coefficients, Stirling numbers, permutations, number partitions and lattice paths, with fundamental coefficients as a kind of unifying idea.
