An appendix by Sergey Fomin covers some deeper aspects of symmetric function theory, including jeu de taquin and the Littlewood-Richardson rule. As in Volume 1, the exercises play a vital role in developing the material.

Enumerative Combinatorics: Volume 2

Also covered are connections between symmetric functions and representation theory. Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants.

While I do not believe, that this book is suitable as a first introduction to combinatorics, it is a great book for anyone, who is interested in the subject and has had some prior exposure.

The chapter on symmetric functions provides the only available treatment of this subject suitable for an introductory graduate course on combinatorics, and includes the important Robinson-Schensted-Knuth algorithm.

Many topics covered in particular, the theory of symmetric functions are not available in any other textbook at this level, and the usefulness of the book is xombinatorics by over exercises with solutions. People interested in partially ordered sets and lattices may want to jump ahead to that chapter–much of this chapter stands on its own, and it is an excellent exposition of that topic, and I think somewhat easier to understand than the rest of the book.

I would recommend this book only to someone who has a strong background in mathematics and wants a challenging text that can take them to a deeper level of understanding. This second volume of a two-volume basic introduction to enumerative combinatorics covers the composition of generating functions, trees, algebraic generating functions, D-finite generating functions, noncommutative generating functions, and symmetric functions.
