Contributor(s): Butler, Steve [Editor] | Cooper, Joshua [Editor] | Hurlbert, Glenn [Editor].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New York Cambridge University Press 2018Description: xii, 352 p.ISBN: 9781316607886.Subject(s): Mathematics | Finite mathematics | Computer scienceDDC classification: 511.1 Summary: Discrete mathematics has been rising in prominence in the past fifty years, both as a tool with practical applications and as a source of new and interesting mathematics. The topics in discrete mathematics have become so well developed that it is easy to forget that common threads connect the different areas, and it is through discovering and using these connections that progress is often made. For over fifty years, Ron Graham has been able to illuminate some of these connections and has helped to bring the field of discrete mathematics to where it is today. To celebrate his contribution, this volume brings together many of the best researchers working in discrete mathematics, including Fan Chung, Erik D. Demaine, Persi Diaconis, Peter Frankl, Alfred W. Hales, Jeffrey C. Lagarias, Allen Knutson, Janos Pach, Carl Pomerance, N. J. A. Sloane, and of course, Ron Graham himself.
