This book introduces the idea of hypergeometric function, the Swiss army knife of combinatorial mathematics, and proceeds to develop algorithms for their computation as well as numerous applications. The authors also reveal what, exactly, computers can help us to decide, what is a "closed form" solution, what are "canonical" and "normal" forms, and inject relevant philosophical digressions that keep the discussions lively and entertaining. The authors also present snippets of "Mathematica" code so that you can try out many of the basic operations yourself.

A comprehensive treatment of fundamental data structures and algorithm analysis with a focus on how to create efficient data structures and algorithms. Aims to help the reader gain an understanding of how to select or design the best data structure.
by Donald E. Knuth - Addison-Wesley Professional
This work on the analysis of algorithms has long been recognized as the definitive description of classical computer science, arguably the most influential work ever written on computer programming. Volume 4 covers Combinatorial Algorithms.
by Pat Morin - AU Press
Offered as an introduction to the field of data structures and algorithms, the book covers the implementation and analysis of data structures for sequences (lists), queues, priority queues, unordered dictionaries, ordered dictionaries, and graphs.
by Clifford A. Shaffer - Dover Publications
A comprehensive treatment focusing on the creation of efficient data structures and algorithms, explaining how to select the data structure best suited to specific problems. It uses Java programming language and is suitable for second-year courses.
