# Combinatorial Problems and Exercises: Second Edition

Share this page
*László Lovász*

AMS Chelsea Publishing: An Imprint of the American Mathematical Society

The main purpose of this book is to provide help in learning existing
techniques in combinatorics. The most effective way of learning such
techniques is to solve exercises and problems. This book presents all the
material in the form of problems and series of problems (apart from some
general comments at the beginning of each chapter). In the second part, a
hint is given for each exercise, which contains the main idea necessary
for the solution, but allows the reader to practice the techniques by
completing the proof. In the third part, a full solution is provided for
each problem.

This book will be useful to those students who intend to start research in
graph theory, combinatorics or their applications, and for those
researchers who feel that combinatorial techniques might help them with
their work in other branches of mathematics, computer science, management
science, electrical engineering and so on. For background, only the
elements of linear algebra, group theory, probability and calculus are
needed.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in graph theory, combinatorics, and their applications.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

Lovász provides extensive help to those wishing to learn existing techniques in combinatories, approaching the topic in a participatory lecture format and providing hundreds of progressive exercises.
