This book is the essential companion to Counting (2nd Edition) (World Scientific, 2013), an introduction to combinatorics for secondary to undergraduate students. The book gives solutions to the exercises in Counting (2nd Edition). There is often more than one method to solve a particular problem and the authors have included alternative solutions whenever they are of interest. The rigorous and clear solutions will aid the reader in further understanding the concepts and applications in Counting (2nd Edition). An introductory section on problem solving as described by George Pólya will be useful in helping the lay person understand how mathematicians think and solve problems.

This book is a useful, attractive introduction to basic counting techniques for upper secondary and junior college students, as well as teachers. Younger students and lay people who appreciate mathematics, not to mention avid puzzle solvers, will also find the book interesting. The various problems and applications here are good for building up proficiency in counting. They are also useful for honing basic skills and techniques in general problem solving. Many of the problems avoid routine and the diligent reader will often discover more than one way of solving a particular problem, which is indeed an important awareness in problem solving. The book thus helps to give students an early start to learning problem-solving heuristics and thinking skills.

The CC program committee is pleased to present this volume with the p- ceedings of the 13th International Conference on Compiler Construction (CC 2004). CC continues to provide an exciting forum for researchers, educators, and practitioners to exchange ideas on the latest developments in compiler te- nology, programming language implementation, and language design. The c- ference emphasizes practical and experimental work and invites contributions on methods and tools for all aspects of compiler technology and all language paradigms. This volume serves as the permanent record of the 19 papers accepted for presentation at CC 2004 held in Barcelona, Spain, during April 1–2, 2004. The 19 papers in this volume were selected from 58 submissions. Each paper was assigned to three committee members for review. The program committee met for one day in December 2003 to discuss the papers and the reviews. By the end of the meeting, a consensus emerged to accept the 19 papers presented in this volume. However, there were many other quality submissions that could not be accommodated in the program; hopefully they will be published elsewhere. ThecontinuedsuccessoftheCCconferenceserieswouldnotbepossiblewi- out the help of the CC community. I would like to gratefully acknowledge and thank all of the authors who submitted papers and the many external reviewers who wrote reviews.

Developed from celebrated Harvard statistics lectures, Introduction to Probability provides essential language and tools for understanding statistics, randomness, and uncertainty. The book explores a wide variety of applications and examples, ranging from coincidences and paradoxes to Google PageRank and Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC). Additional application areas explored include genetics, medicine, computer science, and information theory. The print book version includes a code that provides free access to an eBook version. The authors present the material in an accessible style and motivate concepts using real-world examples. Throughout, they use stories to uncover connections between the fundamental distributions in statistics and conditioning to reduce complicated problems to manageable pieces. The book includes many intuitive explanations, diagrams, and practice problems. Each chapter ends with a section showing how to perform relevant simulations and calculations in R, a free statistical software environment.

These notes were first used in an introductory course team taught by the authors at Appalachian State University to advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates. The text was written with four pedagogical goals in mind: offer a variety of topics in one course, get to the main themes and tools as efficiently as possible, show the relationships between the different topics, and include recent results to convince students that mathematics is a living discipline.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Integration of AI and OR Techniques in Constraint Programming for Combinatorial Optimization Problems, CPAIOR 2008, held in Paris, France, in May 2008. The 18 revised long papers and 22 revised short papers presented together with 3 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 130 submissions. The papers describe current research in the fields of constraint programming, artificial intelligence, and operations research to explore ways of solving large-scale, practical optimization problems through integration and hybridization of the fields' different techniques.

In this engaging and readable book, Dr. Körner describes a variety of lively topics that continue to intrigue professional mathematicians. The topics range from the design of anchors and the Battle of the Atlantic to the outbreak of cholera in Victorian Soho. The author uses relatively simple terms and ideas, yet explains difficulties and avoids condescension. If you are a mathematician who wants to explain to others how you spend your working days, then seek inspiration here. This book will appeal to everyone interested in the uses of mathematics.
