Review

"If you need to know about the...applications of discrete structures, you'll probably find whatever you're looking for here."
IEEE Micro Review

"The Handbook of Combinatorics will be a work of quality and significance in what has become, over the past 20 years, one of the most active and fruitful areas of mathematical research. The editors, who are top people in the field, have collected a distinguished group of authors. The Handbook will be a major and central scholarly work."
—Hartley Rogers, Jr., Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is a collection of survey articles by various top class mathematicians about combinatorics, and the links the subject has with other branches of knowledge, from topology to biology. I have only read a couple of chapters in any detail and they were very useful. If you are in combinatorics, you must have access to this. The expense is worth it.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Roger Bagula on May 26, 2009
Format: Hardcover
An handbook is usually a little fact book with just the facts
presented in as understandable a fashion as possible.
You have to look at this book from a price to benefit point of view.
Most of these research / survey papers are just not presented in a teaching mode: more of a theorem and proof mode with references.
The price tag per volume is over 200 dollars.
My bet is that libraries and the authors are the main market,
with most poor graduate students and post grads not being able to afford
the volumes at a price for both at of $400.
The material is dense and not presented in enough detail that
the result is very useful to a student.
Here we have more ego than scholarship as a result?
