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. Dombinatorics 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 cmobinatorics 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.

Review quote ‘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.

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.

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.
