Introduction to Enumerative Combinatorics

Enumerative combinatorics deals with finite sets and their cardinalities. In other words, a typical problem of enumerative combinatorics is to find the number of ways a certain pattern can be formed. In the first part of our course we will be dealing with elementary combinatorial objects and notions: permutations, combinations, compositions, Fibonacci and Catalan numbers etc. In the second part of the course we introduce the notion of generating functions and use it to study recurrence relations and partition numbers. The course is mostly self-contained. However, some acquaintance with basic linear algebra and analysis (including Taylor series expansion) may be very helpful. Do you have technical problems?

algorithms analysis toolbox

The techniques taught in this course will be a nice addition to my algorithms analysis toolbox.

been especially refreshing

This has been especially refreshing in the world of online courses, where shallow and computational problem sets can sometimes be the norm.

doing extra research

by far the best math course I had (and I've taken many) on coursera I enjoyed the course.The lecturer was very good and the material quite interesting.I feel that the assignments where sometimes very different compared to the material covered but I ended up doing extra research and learning more which is good!Many thanks to the Coursera Staff as well as the Higher School of Economics.
