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.

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.
