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.

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.

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.

The main goal of this survey is to state clearly and concisely some of the most useful tools in algebraic and geometric enumeration, and to give many examples that quickly and concretely illustrate how to put these tools to use.
