S (01) Article electronically published on October 12, Enumerative combinatorics, Volume 2, by Richard P. Stanley, Cambridge Univer . Both volumes already had pages on MAA Reviews, because both appeared in the a common assumption, because one now finds a note on Stanley’s web site indicating that “there will be no second edition of Volume 2. Volume 1 of Enumerative Combinatorics was published by Wadsworth Volumes 1 and 2 can be ordered online from Cambridge University Press ( volume 1.

East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. The most precious thing about this book is that the author manages to provide several comprehensive frameworks for solving large classes of enumeration problems.

Also covered are connections between symmetric functions and representation theory. Additional Errata and Addenda. My library Help Advanced Book Search. The author often chooses a more general framework in which to present things, and this can make the material quite difficult to follow.

Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. While I do not believe, that this book is suitable as a first introduction to combinatorics, it is a great book for anyone, who is interested in the subject and has had some prior exposure. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Contents Trees and the Composition of Generating Enumerahive. The book contains mainy excercises with solutions!!!

StanleySergey Fomin. The chapter on symmetric functions provides the only available treatment of this subject suitable for an introductory graduate course on combinatorics, and includes the important Robinson-Schensted-Knuth algorithm.
Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Combinatorics seems a hodge-podge subject to many mathematicians, but Stanley manages to see it as a unified subject with a number of general theories and common techniques. I would still recommend volume II to anybody seriously interested in combinatorics, but it is definitely harder than volume I Overall, my rating remains at “full score”!
I am what one of the reviewers called an arm-chair mathematician. An appendix by Sergey Enumerahive covers some deeper aspects of symmetric function theory, including jeu de taquin and the Littlewood-Richardson rule. A few additional lines of explanation would have made the proofs easier to understand – at least for an “ar chair mathematician”! Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. An Introduction to Enumeration and Graph Theory. Graduate students and research mathematicians who wish to apply combinatorics to their work will find this an authoritative reference.
This is an excellent book on combinatorics, but it is quite difficult to understand–written for experts, not novices. Good condition, etanley book. There are over exercises, all with solutions or references to solutions, many of which concern previously unpublished results.

The clarity of thought is appreciated. So far so good: The formal mathematical prerequisites are quite minimal. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. A12 Jeu de Taquin.
This book is truly the only text I have ever read that has this perspective on the subject. Awesome book to read for a math major! This second volume of a two-volume basic introduction to enumerative combinatorics covers the composition of generating functions, trees, algebraic generating functions, D-finite generating functions, noncommutative generating functions, and symmetric functions.
Occasionally I question how Stanley chooses to present a certain topic, but usually if I look closely enough, I see that there are deep reasons for his choice of notation or presentation.
