2 Reviews
Experimenting with Combinatorica, a widely used software package for teaching and research in discrete mathematics, provides an exciting new way to learn combinatorics and graph theory. With examples of all 450 functions in action plus tutorial text on the mathematics, this book is the definitive guide to Combinatorica. Three interesting classes of exercises are provided -- theorem/proof, programming exercises, and experimental explorations, providing great flexibility in teaching and learning the material.The Combinatorica user community ranges from students to engineers to researchers in mathematics, computer science, physics, economics, and the humanities. Combinatorica, which has received the EDUCOM Higher Education Software Award, is included with every copy of the popular computer algebra system Mathematica.
