The object of this work is, in the main, to present to mathematicians an account of theorems in combinatory analysis which are of a perfectly general character, and to shew the connexion between them by as far as possible bringing them together as parts of a general doctrine. It may appeal also to others whose reading has not been very extensive.

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.

The purpose of the course is to give students a broad exposure to combinatorial mathematics, using applications to emphasize fundamental concepts and techniques. Our approach to the course is to show students the beauty of combinatorics.
by Gian-Carlo Rota
In 1998, Gian-Carlo Rota gave his famous course at MIT. John N. Guidi took notes in a verbatim manner conveying the substance of the course. Topics covered included sets, relations, enumeration, order, matching, matroids, and geometric probability.

The standard guide to the topic for students and experts alike. The material in Volume 1 was chosen to cover those parts of enumerative combinatorics of greatest applicability and with the most important connections with other areas of mathematics.
