by Klaus Truemper - Leibniz
Matroids were introduced in 1935 as an abstract generalization of graphs and matrices. Matroid decomposition covers the area of the theory dealing with decomposition and composition of matroids. The exposition is clear and simple.
by David Guichard - Whitman College
The book covers the classic parts of Combinatorics and graph theory, with some recent progress in the area. Contents: Fundamentals; Inclusion-Exclusion; Generating Functions; Systems of Distinct Representatives; Graph Theory; Polya-Redfield Counting.

This is an introduction to combinatorial mathematics, also known as combinatorics. The book focuses especially but not exclusively on the part of combinatorics that mathematicians refer to as 'counting'. The book consists almost entirely of problems.
