Both volumes already had pages on MAA Reviews, because both appeared in the a common assumption, because one now finds a note on Stanley’s web site indicating that “there will be no second edition of Volume 2. Volume 1 of Enumerative Combinatorics was published by Wadsworth Volumes 1 and 2 can be ordered online from Cambridge University Press ( volume 1.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. Some will appreciate the conciseness, others might wish for a little more explanation. Stanley Limited preview – Not meant for the novice, and a very hard read for even the intermediate.
A few additional lines of explanation would have made the proofs easier to understand – at least for an “ar chair mathematician”!

Editorial Volumw Review ” While I do not believe, that this book is suitable as a first introduction to combinatorics, it is a great book for anyone, who is interested in the subject and has had some prior exposure. People who find voljme book difficult to follow may want still benefit from some of the easier exercises.
I find it impossible to predict when Richard Stanley’s two-volume exposition of combinatorics may be superseded.

McGovern Limited preview – I would still recommend volume II to anybody seriously interested in combinatorics, but it is definitely harder than volume I Overall, my rating remains at “full score”!

A Walk Through Combinatorics: This stqnley volume of a two-volume basic introduction to enumerative combinatorics covers the composition of generating functions, trees, algebraic generating functions, D-finite generating functions, noncommutative generating functions, and symmetric functions.
Combinatorics seems a hodge-podge subject to many mathematicians, but Stanley manages to see it as a unified subject with a number of vopume theories and common techniques. I am what one of the reviewers called an arm-chair mathematician.
The book contains mainy excercises with solutions!!!

Some of the material in this book is easier than others; some of it depends on earlier chapters, but some stands on its own. As in Volume 1, the exercises play a vital role in developing the material.
