The purpose of the course is to give students a broad exposure to combinatorial mathematics, using applications to emphasize fundamental concepts and techniques. Our approach to the course is to show students the beauty of combinatorics and how combinatorial problems naturally arise in many settings, particularly in computer science.

by Gian-Carlo Rota
In 1998, Gian-Carlo Rota gave his famous course at MIT. John N. Guidi took notes in a verbatim manner conveying the substance of the course. Topics covered included sets, relations, enumeration, order, matching, matroids, and geometric probability.

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.
by David Guichard - Whitman College
The book covers the classic parts of Combinatorics and graph theory, with some recent progress in the area. Contents: Fundamentals; Inclusion-Exclusion; Generating Functions; Systems of Distinct Representatives; Graph Theory; Polya-Redfield Counting.
by Richard P. Stanley - MIT
The standard guide to the topic for students and experts alike. The material in Volume 1 was chosen to cover those parts of enumerative combinatorics of greatest applicability and with the most important connections with other areas of mathematics.
