Some of the topics I will cover can be found in this two-volume book, which is a useful book to have if you are interested in combinatorics:
Other topics will be taken from:
Tentative list of topics
Homework, exams, and grading
The course grade will be based on the homework (30%) and a final exam (70%).
The homework will consist of a few problem sets. Collaboration is permitted,
but you are not allowed to copy someone else's work. The solutions must be
written individually. You have to mention on your problem set the names of the
students that you worked with, and also if you used some books or articles that
are not on the above list.
The final will be a take-home exam. You must work on the problems on your own. No collaboration permitted in the exam.
disabilities: Students with learning,
physical, or psychiatric disabilities enrolled in this course that may need
disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an office
appointment to see me before the end of the second week of the term. All
discussions will remain confidential, although the Student Disability
Services office may be consulted to discuss
appropriate implementation of any accommodation requested.
