Introduction to Combinatorial Analysis by John Riordan Introductory text surveys the theory of permutations and combinations associated with elementary algebra; the principle of inclusion and exclusion; and the theory of distributions and partitions in cyclic representation. Includes problems. 1958 edition.
Invitation to Combinatorial Topology by Maurice Fréchet, Ky Fan, Howard W. Eves Elementary text, accessible to anyone with a background in high school geometry, covers problems inherent to coloring maps, homeomorphism, applications of Descartes' theorem, topological polygons, more. Includes 108 figures. 1967 edition.
Combinatorial Topology by P. S. Alexandrov Clearly written, well-organized, 3-part text begins by dealing with certain classic problems without using the formal techniques of homology theory and advances to the central concept, the Betti groups. Numerous detailed examples.
Sets, Sequences and Mappings: The Basic Concepts of Analysis by Kenneth Anderson, Dick Wick Hall This text bridges the gap between beginning and advanced calculus. It offers a systematic development of the real number system and careful treatment of mappings, sequences, limits, continuity, and metric spaces. 1963 edition.
This graduate-level text presents an encyclopedic account of the mathematical theory and problem-solving techniques associated with enumeration problems. Its approach blends combinatorial and algebraic ideas to offer insights into a wide variety of problems, and each section of the book focuses on a specific discrete structure, advancing from elementary (often classical) results to those at research level. Subjects include the combinatorics of the ordinary generating function and the exponential generating function, the combinatorics of sequences, and the combinatorics of paths. The text is complemented by approximately 350 exercises with full solutions. 1983 edition. Foreword by Gian-Carlo Rota. References. Index.
