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.

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 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.
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.

The purpose of the course is to give students a broad exposure to combinatorial mathematics, using applications to emphasize fundamental concepts and techniques. Our approach to the course is to show students the beauty of combinatorics.
