**Notes on the Combinatorial Fundamentals of Algebra**

by Darij Grinberg

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2021**Number of pages**: 1359

**Description**:

This is a detailed survey, with rigorous and self-contained proofs, of some of the basics of elementary combinatorics and algebra, including the properties of finite sums, binomial coefficients, permutations and determinants. It is entirely expository and written to a large extent as a repository for folklore proofs; no new results appear.
