Analytic Combinatorics is a self-contained treatment of the mathematics underlying the analysis of discrete structures, which has emerged over the past several decades as an essential tool in the understanding of properties of computer programs and scientific models with applications in physics, biology and chemistry. Thorough treatment of a large number of classical applications is an essential aspect of the presentation. Written by the leaders in the field of analytic combinatorics, this text is certain to become the definitive reference on the topic. The text is complemented with exercises, examples, appendices and notes to aid understanding therefore, it can be used as the basis for an advanced undergraduate or a graduate course on the subject, or for self-study.

The main goal of this survey is to state clearly and concisely some of the most useful tools in algebraic and geometric enumeration, and to give many examples that quickly and concretely illustrate how to put these tools to use.

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.

This introduction to combinatorics, the interaction between computer science and mathematics, is suitable for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in engineering, science, and mathematics. Some ability to construct proofs is assumed.
