By Dennis Stanton,Dennis White

The notes that at last turned this publication have been written among 1977 and 1985 for the path referred to as positive Combinatorics on the college of Minnesota. it is a one-quarter (10 week) direction for higher point undergraduate scholars. the category often involves arithmetic and laptop technological know-how majors, with an occasional engineering scholar. a number of graduate scholars in desktop technological know-how additionally attend. At Minnesota, positive Combinatorics is the 3rd zone of a 3 sector series. the 1st sector, Enumerative Combinatorics, is on the point of the texts by means of Bogart [Bo], Brualdi [Br], Liu [Li] or Tucker [Tu] and is a prerequisite for this direction. the second one sector, Graph idea and Optimization, isn't a prerequisite. We suppose that the scholars are acquainted with the strategies of enumeration: simple counting rules, producing capabilities and inclusion/exclusion. This direction advanced from a path on combinatorial algorithms. That path contained a mix of graph algorithms, optimization and directory algorithms. the pc assignments quite often consisted of trying out algorithms on examples. whereas we felt that such fabric was once necessary and never with out mathematical content material, we didn't imagine that the direction had a coherent mathematical concentration. additionally, a lot of it used to be being taught, or might have been taught, in different places. Graph algorithms and optimization, for example, have been inserted into the graph concept direction the place they certainly belonged. the pc technology division already taught a number of the fabric: the easier algorithms in a discrete arithmetic direction; potency of algorithms in a extra complicated course.

The 1st a part of this article covers the most graph theoretic subject matters: connectivity, timber, traversability, planarity, colouring, masking, matching, digraphs, networks, matrices of a graph, graph theoretic algorithms, and matroids. those strategies are then utilized within the moment half to difficulties in engineering, operations learn, and technological know-how in addition to to an engaging set of miscellaneous difficulties, hence illustrating their huge applicability.
