Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 423; 2007; 324 ppMSC: Primary 05; 52; Secondary 14; 20;
This volume contains original research and survey articles stemming from the Euroconference “Algebraic and Geometric Combinatorics”. The papers discuss a wide range of problems that illustrate interactions of combinatorics with other branches of mathematics, such as commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, convex and discrete geometry, enumerative geometry, and topology of complexes and partially ordered sets. Among the topics covered are combinatorics of polytopes, lattice polytopes, triangulations and subdivisions, Cohen–Macaulay cell complexes, monomial ideals, geometry of toric surfaces, groupoids in combinatorics, Kazhdan–Lusztig combinatorics, and graph colorings. This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students interested in various aspects of modern combinatorial theories.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in various topics in combinatorics.
