# Combinatorics Problems and Solutions, Second Edition

This book will help you learn combinatorics in the most effective way possible - through problem solving. It contains 263 combinatorics problems with detailed solutions.

Combinatorics is the part of mathematics that involves counting. It is therefore an essential part of anyone's mathematical toolkit. The applications of combinatorics include probability, cryptography, error correcting, games, music and visual art.

In this new edition we have expanded the introductory section by more than twice the original size, and the number of problems has grown by over 30%. There are new sections on the pigeon hole principle and integer partitions with accompanying problems. Many of the new problems are application oriented. There are also new combinatorial geometry problems.

Someone with no prior exposure to combinatorics will find enough introductory material to quickly get a grasp of what combinatorics is all about and acquire the confidence to start tackling problems.
