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.

Combinatorics Through Guided DiscoveryCombinatorics Through Guided Discovery
by Kenneth P. Bogart - Dartmouth College
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.
