excellent for competition training Jul 25, 2005
A very clearly written classic of an important topic, with lots of problems meant for mathematical competition training. Highly recommended.
Rigorous and Lucid Apr 1, 2005
I wish I had this book on hand during my course in combinatorics. It is a must-have introduction for math undergrads and the general public alike. (Never let the price of a mathematics book fool you. Like a classical music CD, the value of the a math book is entirely determined by its content.) It is lucidly written, which is critical for this ostensibly simple field. Fuzzy explanations can lead readers far astray; poor examples can obscure key concepts. Michael Tucker's "Applied Combinatorics" suffers from this very problem. However, this is not so with Chen and Koh's volume. They are kind enough to provide multiple combinatorial proofs for a considerable number of problems, and they do so in the familar AMS format. There are an abundance of problems at the end of each chapter. Their chapters on Inclusion-Exclusion and recurrence relations shine brightly. Pick it up now!
