Description:
In 1998, Gian-Carlo Rota gave his famous course, Combinatorial Theory, at MIT for the last time. John N. Guidi taped the lectures and took notes which he then wrote up in an almost verbatim manner conveying the substance and some of the atmosphere of the course. Topics covered included sets, relations, enumeration, order, matching, matroids, and geometric probability.

Book cover: Matroid DecompositionMatroid Decomposition
by - 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.
