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.

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.

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.
