Review from previous edition: The book is well written and includes a couple of nice touches I recommend it highly both as an introduction to matroid theory and as a reference work for those already seriously interested in the subject, whether for its own sake or for its applications to other fields.

The care that went into the writing of this book is oxleyy by the quality of the exposition. James Oxley was born in Australia. After completing his undergraduate studies there, he received his doctorate from Oxford University in under the supervision of Dominic Welsh. He has been an Alumni Professor there since He has written more than one hundred research papers in matroid theory and ocley theory and has given over fifty conference talks including plenary addresses at the Jamez Combinatorial Conference in and an American Mathematical Society meeting in Fourteen students have completed doctorates under his supervision and he is currently advising five other doctoral candidates.

Seventy-five years of study of matroids has seen the development of a rich theory with links to graphs, lattices, codes, transversals, and projective geometries. Matroids are of fundamental importance in combinatorial optimization and their applications extend into electrical and structural engineering. This book falls into two parts: The book contains over seven hundred exercises and includes, for the first time in one place, proofs of all of the major theorems in the subject.

The last two chapters review current research and list more than eighty unsolved problems along with a description of the progress towards their solutions.

Please try again later. I was very pleased with the condition of the book that I received. The book arrived ahead of schedule to my appartment. One person found this helpful. This is a great text on matroid theory. This book is far easier to read than other matroid book I have seen Welsh.

Second priting from fixes some of the errors in the first printing and is cheaper to boot being a paperback. Amazon points to wrong book as the paperback of first edition. Carefully written, thorough and up to date. This book is a uniquely valuable reference for researchers interested in matroid theory.
