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.
The origins of combinatorial “thinking” as applied to biological problems can be traced to our understanding of the immune system. Many common topics from combinatorics have received very little treat. The existence problem combinatorial designs such as block designs, latin squares, finite projective planes are covered in 70 pages.
English Choose a language for shopping. No other text with which I am familiar comes even close to the number of applications presented here.
The amount of material on combinatorics combiantorics exceedingly non-trivial. Combinatorics question 16th, There is a 40 pagechapter on coding theory, with the use of block tesssman to find error. I really love this book. Write a customer review. I know of no other text which comes close. The only appleid i have is there are no solutions to any prblems so you dont know if you are doing them correctly. 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.
Problems are reasonably hard and the literature is accurate. This really helps them to understand the mathematics and also to see how this field is useful in the real world. This book continues CRC’s fine tradition of putting out definitive texts on a technical field.

They cover both theoretical aspects and practical problems from state-of-the-art scientific research in various areas, such as biology and telecommunications.

A textbook for my college-aged child – I guess it’s good – I don’t really understand any of it. It is good enough that I’m going to buy my own copy after reading a library copy.
It not only covers nearly every topic in the subject, but gives several realistic applications for each topic.
The motivating examples are a truly strong point for the text. I tessmwn few readers will actually tesman this book combinqtorics cover to cover.
