Publisher Comments:

Written by one of the foremost experts in the field, Algebraic Combinatorics is a unique undergraduate textbook that will prepare the next generation of pure and applied mathematicians. The combination of the author's extensive knowledge of combinatorics and classical and practical tools from algebra will inspire motivated students to delve deeply into the fascinating interplay between algebra and combinatorics. Readers will be able to apply their newfound knowledge to mathematical, engineering, and business models. The text is primarily intended for use in a one-semester advanced undergraduate course in algebraic combinatorics, enumerative combinatorics, or graph theory.

Synopsis:

Written by an expert in the field, this undergraduate textbook will prepare the next generation of pure and applied mathematicians. Key topics include walks on graphs, cubes and the Radon transform, the Matrix-Tree Theorem, and the Sperner property.
