Algebraic and Geometric Methods in Enumerative Combinatorics

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 143

The guiding principle was to focus on algebraic and geometric techniques that are useful towards the solution of enumerative problems. The main goal of this survey is to state clearly and concisely some of the most useful tools in algebraic and geometric enumeration, and to give many examples that quickly and concretely illustrate how to put these tools to use.

These notes deal with enumerative combinatorics. The author included some traditional material and some truly nontrivial material, albeit with a treatment that makes it accessible to the student. He derives a variety of techniques for counting.
