# A Walk Through Combinatorics ebook

If looking to improve your combinatorial problem solving or better grasp the scope of the field, "A Walk Through Combinatorics" is a slim, suitable solution. It is not, however, a full primer.

If looking to improve your combinatorial problem solving or better grasp the scope of the field, "A Walk Through Combinatorics" is a slim, suitable solution. Although it acquaints the reader with several topics, it seems little concerned with their unified development.

This is a textbook for an introductory combinatorics course that can take up one or two semesters.

Chapter 6, the chapter on cycles in combinatorics, was so complex that I had to skip it entirely. It's just that the book is too difficult. Even in other chapters, I am unable to do over 50% of the problems on my own. I am currently an independent learner. I have all of the background information necessary to study the book. Could anybody recommend me an easier book that would still cover a basic combinatorics course? combinatorics book-recommendation. asked Feb 20 '15 at 15:59.

A Walk Through Combinatorics. This is a textbook for an introductory combinatorics course that can take up one or two semesters. In each section, there are also exercises that contain material not explicitly discussed in the preceding text, so as to provide instructors with extra choices if they want to shift the emphasis of their course.

It goes without saying that the text covers the classic areas, i.e. combinatorial choice problems and graph theory. What is unusual, for an undergraduate textbook, is that the author has included a number of more elaborate concepts, such as Ramsey theory, the probabilistic method and - probably the first of its kind - pattern avoidance. While the reader can only skim the surface of these areas, the author believes that they are interesting enough to catch the attention of some students. As the goal of the book is to encourage students to learn more combinatorics, every effort has been made to provide them with a not only useful, but also enjoyable and engaging reading.
