Most widely held works by Herbert S Wilf
Generatingfunctionology by Herbert S Wilf( Book )

49 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the Second Edition of the highly successful introduction to the use of generating functions and series in combinatorial mathematics. This new edition includes several new areas of application, including the cycle index of the symmetric group, permutations and square roots, counting polyominoes, and exact covering sequences. An appendix on using the computer algebra programs MAPLE(r) and Mathematica(r) to generate functions is also included. The book provides a clear, unified introduction to the basic enumerative applications of generating functions, and includes exercises and solutions, many new, at the end of each chapter
Algorithms and complexity by Herbert S Wilf( Book )

A=B by Marko Petkovšek( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the area of combinatorial identities computers are able to find very elegant proofs of difficult theorems unassisted by human intervention. This autonomy means that not only is it possible to use a PC to find such a proof, but also the proof can be checked easily. This book shows how several recently developed computer algorithms can master the difficult job of simplifying complex summations and if there is no such simplification they will prove this to be the case. The authors present the underlying mathematical theory of these methods, the principle theorems and proofs, and include a package of computer programs that can do these tasks

A survey of some of the work that has been done since the appearance of the second edition of Combinatorial Algorithms. Topics include progress in: Gray Codes, listing of subsets of given size of a given universe, listing rooted and free trees, selecting free trees and unlabeled graphs uniformly at random, and ranking and unranking problems on unlabeled trees
Mathematical aspects of electrical network analysis by Symposium in applied mathematics of the American Mathematical Society and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics( Book )

14 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume constitutes the final scientific report for a symposium on Mathematical Aspects of Electrical Network Theory. It contains thirteen papers presented during the April 1969 meeting of the American Mathematical Society. Topics covered include numerical techniques for nonlinear circuit analysis, network models, perturbation theory for nonlinear network synthesis, and graph theoretic applications to electrical network theory.
