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.

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.

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.

This is a collection of mathematical algorithms with many new and interesting examples in this second edition. The authors tried to place in the reader's hands a kit of building blocks with which the reader can construct more elaborate structures.
