By Joseph P. S. Kung,Gian-Carlo Rota,Catherine H. Yan

Gian-Carlo Rota used to be some of the most unique and vibrant mathematicians of the 20 th century. His paintings at the foundations of combinatorics desirous about the algebraic buildings that lie in the back of varied combinatorial parts, and created a brand new region of algebraic combinatorics. Written by means of of his former scholars, this ebook is predicated on notes from his influential graduate classes and on face-to-face discussions. themes comprise units and valuations, partly ordered units, distributive lattices, walls and entropy, matching thought, loose matrices, doubly stochastic matrices, Moebius capabilities, chains and antichains, Sperner thought, commuting equivalence relatives and linear lattices, modular and geometric lattices, valuation earrings, producing services, umbral calculus, symmetric features, Baxter algebras, unimodality of sequences, and site of zeros of polynomials. Many workouts and learn difficulties are incorporated, and unexplored parts of attainable study are mentioned. a must have for all scholars and researchers in combinatorics and similar areas.

Magic Graphs

Magic squares, their origins misplaced in antiquity, are one of the extra renowned mathematical recreations. "Magic" rules have additionally been utilized to graphs, labellings, and bushes. in contrast to many elusive matters during this sector, the matter for vertex-magic overall labelings has been solved, and the main points are tested during this quantity.

Mathematical Essays in Honor of Gian-Carlo Rota (Progress in Mathematics)

In April of 1996 an array of mathematicians converged on Cambridge, Massachusetts, for the Rotafest and Umbral Calculus Workshop, con­ ferences celebrating Gian-Carlo Rota's sixty fourth birthday. It appeared acceptable while feting one of many world's nice combinatorialists to have the anniversary be an influence of two instead of the extra mundane sixty five.

Handbook of Product Graphs, Second Edition (Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications)

Guide of Product Graphs, moment version examines the dichotomy among the constitution of goods and their subgraphs. It additionally positive aspects the layout of effective algorithms that realize items and their subgraphs and explores the connection among graph parameters of the product and elements. broadly revised and accelerated, the instruction manual provides complete proofs of many vital effects in addition to up to date learn and conjectures.
