Combinatorics : topics, techniques, algorithms by
Peter J Cameron(
Book
)
31 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Combinatorics is a subject of increasing importance, owing to its links with computer science, statistics and algebra. This is a textbook aimed at secondyear undergraduates to beginning graduates. It stresses common techniques (such as generating functions and recursive construction) which underlie the great variety of subject matter and also stresses the fact that a constructive or algorithmic proof is more valuable than an existence proof. The book is divided into two parts, the second at a higher level and with a wider range than the first. Historical notes are included which give a wider perspective on the subject. More advanced topics are given as projects and there are a number of exercises, some with solutions given

Designs, graphs, codes, and their links by
Peter J Cameron(
Book
)
25 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although graph theory, design theory, and coding theory had their origins in various areas of applied mathematics, today they are to be found under the umbrella of discrete mathematics. Here the authors have considerably reworked and expanded their earlier successful books on graphs, codes and designs, into an invaluable textbook. They do not seek to consider each of these three topics individually, but rather to stress the many and varied connections between them. The discrete mathematics needed is developed in the text, making this book accessible to any student with a background of undergraduate algebra. Many exercises and useful hints are included througout, and a large number of references are given

Permutation groups by
Peter J Cameron(
Book
)
19 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Permutation groups are one of the oldest topics in algebra. Their study has recently been revolutionized by new developments, particularly the Classification of Finite Simple Groups, but also relations with logic and combinatorics, and importantly, computer algebra systems have been introduced that can deal with large permutation groups. This text summarizes these developments, including an introduction to relevant computer algebra systems, sketch proofs of major theorems, and many examples of applying the Classification of Finite Simple Groups. It is aimed at beginning graduate students and experts in other areas, and grew from a short course at the EIDMA institute in Eindhoven

Oligomorphic permutation groups by
Peter J Cameron(
Book
)
20 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The study of permutation groups has always been closely associated with that of highly symmetric structures. The objects considered here are countably infinite, but have only finitely many different substructures of any given finite size. They are precisely those structures which are determined by firstorder logical axioms together with the assumption of countability. This book concerns such structures, their substructures and their automorphism groups. A wide range of techniques are used: group theory, combinatorics, Baire category and measure among them. The book arose from lectures given a

Topics in algebraic graph theory by
Lowell W Beineke(
Book
)
8 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The rapidly expanding area of algebraic graph theory uses two different branches of algebra to explore various aspects of graph theory: linear algebra (for spectral theory) and group theory (for studying graph symmetry). These areas have links with other areas of mathematics, such as logic and harmonic analysis, and are increasingly being used in such areas as computer networks where symmetry is an important feature. Other books cover portions of this material, but this book is unusual in covering both of these aspects and there are no other books with such a wide scope. The book contain ten expository chapters written by acknowledged international experts in the field. Their wellwritten contributions have been carefully edited to enhance readability and to standardize the chapter structure, terminology and notation throughout the book. To help the reader, there is an extensive introductory chapter that covers the basic background material in graph theory, linear algebra and group theory. Each chapter concludes with an extensive list of references

Parallelisms of complete designs by
Peter J Cameron(
)
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These notes present an investigation of a condition similar to Euclid's parallel axiom for subsets of finite sets. The background material to the theory of parallelisms is introduced and the author then describes the links this theory has with other topics from the whole range of combinatorial theory and permutation groups. These include network flows, perfect codes, Latin squares, block designs and multiplytransitive permutation groups, and long and detailed appendices are provided to serve as introductions to these various subjects. Many of the results are published for the first time

Graphs, codes, and designs by
Peter J Cameron(
)
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is concerned with the relations between graphs, errorcorrecting codes and designs, in particular how techniques of graph theory and coding theory can give information about designs. A major revision and expansion of a previous volume in this series, this account includes many examples and new results as well as improved treatments of older material. So that nonspecialists will find the treatment accessible the authors have included short introductions to the three main topics. This book will be welcomed by graduate students and research mathematicians and be valuable for advanced courses in finite combinatorics

Peter J Cameron(
)
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These are notes deriving from lecture courses given by the authors in 1973 at Westfield College, London. The lectures described the connection between the theory of tdesigns on the one hand, and graph theory on the other. A feature of this book is the discussion of thenrecent construction of tdesigns from codes. Topics from a wide range of finite combinatorics are covered and the book will interest all scholars of combinatorial theory
