Combinatorics is a topic in math within the broader area of discrete mathematics. In essence, it deals with methods for counting discrete structures and techniques for arranging objects according to stated rules. As such, it will involve basic ideas like permutations and combinations. Normally, however, full semester courses in combinatorics are approached at advanced levels with topics that can become quite sophisticated.

A college-level course in combinatorics may involve study in the following areas:

  • Numbers and counting
  • Subsets, partitions, permutations
  • Recurrence relations and generating functions
  • The principle of inclusion and exclusion
  • Latin squares and SDRs
  • Extremal set theory
  • Steiner triple theory
  • Finite geometry
  • Ramsey's theorem
  • Graphs
  • Posets, lattices and matroids
  • More on partitions and permutations
  • Automorphism groups and permutation groups
  • Enumeration under group action
  • Designs
  • Error-correcting codes
  • Graph colorings
  • The infinite

For those counting enthusiasts, a visit to Peter Cameron's home page should prove interesting, although his official academic site can be found at the University of London. To stay up to date with combinatorics, students should read the European Journal of Combinatorics.

Question of the Week

If an address bus needs to be able to address four devices, how many conductors will be required?  What if each of those devices also needs to be able to talk back to the I/O control device? The solution of the previous question of the week can be seen below. The maximum aggregate I/O transfer rate of the system is equal to: 700Kbystes/s + 700 Kbytes...
