Math 184: Enumerative Combinatorics

Spring 2021





Upcoming Lecture Material


Course Description: Math 184 will be an introduction to combinatorics. We will study a number of topics for understanding and proving things about discrete objects. Topics include: mathematical techniques like mathematical induction and the pigeonhole principle; basic counting techniques for dealing with permutations, combinations and lists; and advanced counting techniques such as inclusion-exclusion and generating functions. Time permitting, we will also cover pattern avoidance in permutations.
