**Combinatorial Theory**

by Gian-Carlo Rota

1998**Number of pages**: 414

**Description**:

In 1998, Gian-Carlo Rota gave his famous course, Combinatorial Theory, at MIT for the last time. John N. Guidi taped the lectures and took notes which he then wrote up in an almost verbatim manner conveying the substance and some of the atmosphere of the course. Topics covered included sets, relations, enumeration, order, matching, matroids, and geometric probability.
