Analytic Combinatoric

Robert Sedgewick

  • William O. Baker Professor of Computer Science

Analytic Combinatorics teaches a calculus that enables precise quantitative predictions of large combinatorial structures. This course introduces the symbolic method to derive functional relations among ordinary, exponential, and multivariate generating functions, and methods in complex analysis for deriving accurate asymptotics from the GF equations.

What Learners Say

"The lectures are very well organized. The instructor, a most prominent figure in the field of combinatorics, explains advanced mathematical notions without sacrificing rigor. I appreciated the option to retake quizzes as many times as one wants, even after passing them, to test one's understanding and assimilation of the concepts."
