Most widely held works by Norman Biggs
Discrete mathematics by Norman Biggs( Book )

94 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a carefully structured, coherent, and comprehensive course of Discrete Mathematics. The clarity of the exposition, and the scope of the contents has made it a popular choice for students and teachers of mathematics, computer science, operational research, and related subjects. The topics covered include the elements of graph theory, combinatorics, number theory, the theory of algorithms, abstract algebra, and coding theory."--Jacket
Graph theory 1736-1936 by Norman Biggs( Book )

45 editions published between 1976 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematics for economics and finance : methods and modelling by Martin Anthony( Book )

45 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Without expecting any particular background of the reader, this book covers the following mathematical topics with frequent reference to applications in economics and finance, Functions, graphs and equations, recurrences (difference equations), differentiation, exponentials and logarithms, optimisation, partial differentiation, optimisation in several variables, vectors and matrices, linear equations, Lagrange multipliers, integration, first-order and second-order differential equations. Throughout, the stress is firmly on how the mathematics relates to economics, and this is illustrated with copious examples and exercises that will foster depth of understanding. Each chapter has three parts: the main text, where key concepts are developed; a section of further worked examples, where sample problems are fully solved; a summary of the chapter together with a selection of problems for the reader to attempt." "For students of economics, mathematics, or both, this book provides an introduction to mathematical methods in economics and finance that will be welcomed for its clarity and breadth."--Jacket
Algebraic graph theory by Norman Biggs( Book )

16 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Permutation groups and combinatorial structures by Norman Biggs( Book )

24 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The subject of this book is the action of permutation groups on sets associated with combinatorial structures. Each chapter deals with a particular structure: groups, geometries, designs, graphs and maps respectively. A unifying theme for the first four chapters is the construction of finite simple groups. In the fifth chapter, a theory of maps on orientable surfaces is developed within a combinatorial framework. This simplifies and extends the existing literature in the field. The book is designed both as a course text and as a reference book for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. A feature is the set of carefully constructed projects, intended to give the reader a deeper understanding of the subject"--Publisher's description
Finite groups of automorphisms; course given at the University of Southampton, October-December 1969 by Norman Biggs( Book )

23 editions published between 1071 and 1971 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interaction models : course given at Royal Holloway College, University of London, October-December 1976 by Norman Biggs( Book )

28 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is based on a set of lectures given to a mixed audience of physicists and mathematicians
Codes : an introduction to information communication and cryptography by Norman Biggs( Book )

20 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an integrated introduction to the mathematics of coding, that is, replacing information expressed in symbols, such as a natural language or a sequence of bits, by another message using (possibly) different symbols. There are three main reasons for doing this: economy, reliability, and security, and each is covered in detail. Only a modest mathematical background is assumed, the mathematical theory being introduced at a level that enables the basic problems to be stated carefully, but without unnecessary abstraction."--Jacket
Quite right : the story of mathematics, measurement, and money by Norman Biggs( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and French and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My aim is to explain how mathematical ideas evolved in response to the growing levels of organization in human societies, from pre-historic times to the present day"--
Introduction to computing with Pascal by Norman Biggs( Book )

9 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English weights : an illustrated survey by Norman Biggs( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combinatorics : the proceedings of the British Combinatorical Conference held in the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, 2-6 July 1973 by British Combinatorial Conference( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a record of the papers presented to the fourth British Combinatorial Conference held in Aberystwyth in July 1973. Contributors from all over the world took part and the result is a very useful and up-to-date account of what is happening in the field of combinatorics. A section of problems illustrates some of the topics in need of further investigation
