New Perspectives in Algebraic Combinatorics
by Louis J. Billera, at al.
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1999
Number of pages: 345
The rich combinatorial problems arising from the study of various algebraic structures are the subject of this book, which contains expository contributions by some of the most respected researchers in the field. It will present the state of the art to graduate students and researchers in combinatorics as well as algebra, geometry, and topology.
