The text was written with four pedagogical goals in mind: offer a variety of topics in one course, get to the main themes and tools as efficiently as possible, show the relationships between the different topics, and include recent results to convince students that mathematics is a living discipline.

Combinatorics and Graph Theory Summary

Combinatorics and Graph Theory by John Harris

These notes were first used in an introductory course team taught by the authors at Appalachian State University to advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates. The text was written with four pedagogical goals in mind: offer a variety of topics in one course, get to the main themes and tools as efficiently as possible, show the relationships between the different topics, and include recent results to convince students that mathematics is a living discipline.

Combinatorics and Graph Theory Reviews

From the reviews:

SIAM REVIEW

The narrative and proofs are well written, and the authors are given to frequent uses of humor. Students should find this book as easy to read as any other good-quality text written with them in mind. Each of the three chapters concludes with several paragraphs describing an excellent selection of more advanced texts or papers to consider for further study

From the reviews of the second edition:

Any undergraduate work in combinatorics or graph theory, whether a course or independent study, would likely be well served by this textbook ... . The authors offer a wide selection of topics, often in more depth than other undergraduate texts, in an engaging and clear style. ... Each chapter concludes with extensive notes on further reading. (Brian Hopkins, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010 b)

Combinatorics and Graph Theory is a popular pair of topics to choose for an undergraduate course. ... The book is written in a reader-friendly style and there are enough exercises. ... It is certainly good that someone took the effort to write ... in a form that is appropriate for undergraduates. ... the book will most often be used for a reading class by a student who already has a background in combinatorics and who wants to learn about the set theoretical aspect of it. (Miklos Bona, SIGACT News, Vol. 40 (3), 2009)

This undergraduate textbook contains three chapters: Graph Theory, Combinatorics and Infinite Combinatorics and Graphs. ... There is a short section on References in each chapter introducing briefly other books dealing with the topics covered in the respective chapter. A full list of 293 references, about 550 exercises and an index with 13 pages are also provided. (Dalibor Froncek, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1170, 2009)
