About the Authors
  • Building from basics and demonstrating the relationships among the various branches of combinatorics, Victor Bryant presents the results in a straightforward way. Numerous examples and exercises including hints and solutions are included throughout and serve to lead the reader to some of the deeper results of the subject, many of which are usually excluded from introductory texts.

    • Bryant's previous undergraduate textbooks have all been very successful
    • Well illustrated with many line diagrams
    • Contains a multitude of examples and exercises

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...makes excellent reading for undergraduates who have already taken an introductory discrete mathematics course which covered counting methods, number theory, graph theory, and proof writing at an elementary level...I highly recommmend Aspects of Combinatorics as a great source of problems and examples that could supplement many upper division mathematics classes." Arthur Benjamin, SIAM Newsletter
