Applied Combinatorics: Fred Roberts, Barry Tesman: : Books
This bestselling textbook offers numerous references to the literature of combinatorics and its applications that enable readers to delve more deeply into the topics. After introducing fundamental counting rules and the tools of graph theory and relations, the authors focus on three basic problems of combinatorics: The text then covers combinatorial design, coding theory, and special problems in graph theory. It also illustrates the basic ideas of combinatorial optimization through a study of graphs and networks.
The book has been substantially rewritten with more than pages of new materials and many changes in the exercises. There are also many new examples to reflect the new developments in computer science and biology since This book is one of the rare ones that does the job really well.
It is suitable for motivated math, computer science or engineering sophomores and even beginning graduate students. In fact bright high school students would love this book and if they are exposed early through reading this book and being guided by their teachersmany of them might end up doing combinatorics for their careers! I really love this book. It is a gem. They cover both theoretical aspects and practical problems from state-of-the-art scientific research in various areas, such as biology and telecommunications.
It is so much fun to just open the book at random and explore the material that jumps out of the pages. This is an overwhelmingly complete introductory textbook in combinatorics.
It not only covers nearly every topic in the subject, but gives several realistic applications for each topic. The writing style is excellent. The motivating examples are a truly strong point for the text. No other text with which I am familiar comes even close to the number of applications presented here. This book is a required textbook for my graduate course in discrete mathematics. Both my students and I have found it to be an excellent resource with interesting application examples from a variety of fields interspersed throughout the text.
The book is very well organized and clearly reinforces both the practical and theoretical understanding in a way students are able to correlate.
Because the level of difficulty for selected problems range from simple to challenging, it makes an appropriate text for junior, senior, and graduate students alike. I am particularly pleased with the relevancy and inclusion of computer science applications …. But what really sets it apart is its impressive use of applications.
I know of no other text which comes close. There are entire sections devoted to subjects like computing voting power, counting organic compounds built up from benzene rings, and the use of orthogonal arrays in cryptography.
This really helps them to understand the mathematics rlberts also to see how this field is useful in the real world.

Write a product review. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. The first two thirds of the book is pretty standard, but the last third goes into detail on some of the modern theory including Hadamard matrices, Euler paths on graphs and Latin squares. It is good enough that I’m going to buy my own copy after reading a library copy. It doesn’t mention Vega triangle free graphs, but it gives one a better chance at modern graph theory than three other books that I have.
The close relationship of graph theory to group theory, geometry and Cartan lie algebras isn’t covered either. Simple book, good problems, doesn’t overcomplicate a simple subject. Four stars just because it could be clearer by the middle of the book, the author is making certain small errors such as introducing concepts out of order, or introducing in passing a major concept while lingering for a longer time on a minor onebut it’s one of the better textbooks I’ve ever had.
This IS the final word on the subject. It is a great reference for combinatorics.

It is as good for people encountering the subject for the first time, as for much more advanced learners, it has sections for both. I particularly liked the section on Polya’s Theorem, it’s the clearest explanation I’ve ever encountered in any mathematical text much better than in Shiffrin’s Abstract Algebra Would highly recommend.
Seems like a reasonable book. Robergs are reasonably hard and the literature is accurate. The only problem i have is there are toberts solutions to any prblems so you dont know if you ckmbinatorics doing them correctly.
